Making the case for technology-based economic development in Bellingham and Whatcom County

Washington Technology Center is leading efforts around a community assessment program for Bellingham and Whatcom County. WTC is working with local community groups, including Bellingham Technical College, the Bellingham Chamber of Commerce, Bellingham-Whatcom EDC, Western Washington University, and the Port of Bellingham on this community assessment study.

The goal of this collaborative effort is to develop a detailed perspective on the Bellingham technology economy, and from this assessment, determine what form a technology-based economic development (TBED) strategy might take in Bellingham. From there, work will begin to engage key stakeholders from industry and trade, academia, and government in putting together a community-wide plan for making TBED a priority for Bellingham.
