ECONOMIC AMBASSADORS TO KING COUNTY AND THE REGION

Our public/private partnership markets the assets of King County and it’s 39 cities by promoting the benefits of establishing, expanding or relocating businesses in our region.

The EDC serves as the first point of contact for site selection consultants and company analysts looking to expand or relocate businesses in the greater Seattle area. Our unique value flows from our ability to accelerate success by connecting businesses with our private and public partners and the variety of essential economic resources they provide: human, financial, entrepreneurial, intellectual, and social-political capital.

"The EDC's work pulling together all the important facts and figures and connecting us to city leaders and the Port of Seattle was critical in our site search. The EDC team has been an outstanding resource for us."

Richard McGowan, Project Manager, Greencore
