January 10th Scaling Up Culture Event Features Rajeev Singh, CEO of Accolade

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, January 2, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Seattle, WA-January 2, 2018-Iinnovate Leadership Network today announced its Scaling Up Excellence Leadership Series schedule for 2018 aimed at fast emerging, growth firms in Greater Seattle. The first 2018 event will be held on January 10th at The Riveter, focused on Scaling Up Culture with Rajeev Singh, CEO of Accolade. The Scaling Up Series was initially launched in November of 2017, featuring Smartsheet CEO, Mark Mader, to a sold-out crowd.

“There is clearly a desire for CEOs and senior leaders to convene and learn from those who have successfully scaled up their companies before, such as Rajeev Singh”, says Joe Ottinger, CEO of Iinnovate Leadership Network. “Innovation and growth bring a great deal of complexity, which is where Iinnovate is focused.”

Founded in 2015, Iinnovate Leadership Network is a Seattle-based leadership network and advisory firm for the innovation economy. Its focus is at the intersection of technology and business, helping technology entrepreneurs grow great businesses, and helping established business leaders tech-enable their companies.

Says Singh, “Creating a business that scales is a challenge few CEOs are lucky enough to face. It means you have a great idea and a team that wants to aim for the sky. Today at Accolade, we are working with an exceptional group of people to build a high-performance team and culture that makes a big difference in the healthcare space. We put people and culture first, which is critical during the scale up phase, and is both exciting and complex. I’m happy to support Joe Ottinger and Seattle business leaders with insights I’ve learned along the way. Iinnovate is a great network filling a real gap in our Greater Seattle business ecosystem.”

Scaling Up Excellence has already received a wide range of support from the Seattle business community at large including contributors such as Cascadia Capital, Silicon Valley Bank, Wilson Sonsini, Ernst & Young, Kidder Mathews, New Engen, Gumball Enterprises, Altus Alliance, Swift HR Solutions, CFO Selections, and Fuel Talent.
