The Office of Economic Development (OED) is committed to creating a sustainable economy with shared prosperity.

Continuing to sustain and enhance Seattle's innovative economy is an important part of our Seattle Jobs Plan. That includes improving the ways we support new entrepreneurial ventures, develop homegrown talent, enhance our quality of life, and build and maintain the next generation of infrastructure.

Read more about the City's investments and highlights of our progress in our annual Seattle Jobs Plan report updates, and check out the Economic Indicators we track each year to measure how Seattle's economy is growing.
