Creative Destruction Lab

For more than 100 years, Foster has fueled Seattle’s renowned innovation, imagination, and ingenuity. Foster faculty and students nurture rich partnerships with Seattle’s many iconic companies, driving our pioneering community forward.

A focus on Computational Health merges local strengths in software development, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and machine learning with biological, medical, and healthcare systems expertise to launch companies that revolutionize healthcare outcomes. In turn, this builds on our aim of bettering humanity through business. We foster leaders who have the courage and conviction to better humanity through action.

Strong partnerships across the UW campus–College of Engineering, Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering, and CoMotion–as well as support from private industry, notably Microsoft Corporation, provides a strong foundation.

We are excited to invite mentors and companies into CDL-Seattle. We find strength in diversity and originality. We foster a welcoming and inclusive environment that inspires everyone to be better together.
