Mission accomplished, what’s next?
The time has come again for our annual luncheon! At OneRedmond, we had a great year working with over 420 businesses that impacted almost 15,000 jobs in our region. We helped 36 companies get off the ground, and helped small businesses raise over $1.2M in capital. What’s next?
Come join us a for lunch as we learn about where our region is going in terms of economic development and trade. Networking opportunities are plenty here and you will walk away being one of the first to hear about where OneRedmond and Greater Seattle Partners will be taking us over the next year.
Our keynote speaker is James Henderson, COO of Greater Seattle Partners (GSP), an effort led by Former Governor Christine Gregoire, Microsoft, Boeing, Amazon, JPMorgan Chase, Starbucks, and Alaska Airlines. Similar to OneRedmond, they are a private-public partnership created to advance economic growth and competitiveness for the region. Working together as one region makes us more competitive, resilient, prosperous, and successful in trade and economic development.
