    Just founded a responsible travel start-up - Meaningful Trip - International tours that support women, health, poverty, edu issues. We also help fight hunger, exploitation and trafficking issues in USA. HOLY CR#P, launching a start-up is a monumental undertaking. If ONLY there was a Meetup, or Seattle event that I could LEARN, BE INSPIRED, and CONNECT with other entrepreneurs? Does anyone know of such a place?
