Seattle Startup Week kicked off yesterday with an amazing party sponsored by HBO. “The Lord of the Ping” challenged any ping pong player to duke it out with Sanjay Puri, Co-Founder and Partner of 9Mile Labs. Then there was the “Lip Sync Battle,” which pitted well-known startup people against each other in song. Not to mention a Game Of Thrones inspired photo booth.
