Supporting Business in Seattle

Our Small Business team focuses on the competitive industry sectors that make up Seattle's economic base. We work with local businesses to learn about their priorities, needs, and challenges, and provide direct services to help them grow and compete. We also strive to ensure business-friendly policies that create and retain jobs for city residents, promote business growth, enhance the city's tax base, and foster economic diversity in Seattle.

Our Goal: We meet with a variety of businesses and provide follow-up business services that connect them to opportunities to expand their markets. We also give advice and referrals on financial and management challenges, and on navigating the regulatory environment.
