Figurehead Brewing Kicks Off Founder Friday

Albers’ Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center presents networking and speaking event with values-based businesses.

The co-founders of Seattle’s Figurehead Brewing—with a location in Magnolia and a second opening this fall on Stone Way— will address students at Seattle University on October 6 to kick off the “Founder Friday” networking and speaker series, sponsored by the Albers School of Business and Economics’ Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center

Co-founded by alums Jesse Warner, ’09 MBA, and Bob Monroe, ’10 MBA, Figurehead Brewing is an example of a values-based business. During the event Monroe and Warner will talk about the craft brewing industry in the state and Figurehead’s model for expansion during a time when some competitors shuttered their doors. 

“We’re looking forward to spending time to help students figure out what their goals are with starting a business,” explains Monroe. “Our message will be don’t get distracted by what you could do. Instead stay focused on what you need to do to reach your goals.”
