It takes a village to grow a small business. Between business plans, marketing plans, product development, licensing and financing, the process can seem complex. Bellevue is committed to providing the resources that your business needs to start, grow and thrive on the Eastside.

We have partnered with Bellevue, Kirkland, Issaquah, Redmond and Renton to develop Startup 425, a one-stop resource for all things entrepreneurial. In addition to web resources and "concierge"-style service, we partner with organizations such as Greater Seattle SCORE, the King County Library System and Choose Washington to run small business workshops across all five Eastside communities. We also partner with the Small Business Development Center to provide one-on-one business support counseling to area small businesses. Best of all? While some of our most in-depth workshops and programs include a small registration fee, most programs are completely free!
