The Marketplace

The Marketplace is a ‘one-stop-shop’ for commercialization resources in Washington state as well as a virtual front door for organizations from outside our region (e.g., investors) to access innovation. The platform will curate and organize the broad spectrum of assets and services, available to entrepreneurs, and make it easy for innovators to make connections to commercialize technology. More simply put, it’s an “Angie’s List” for services in our region like lab space, lawyers, accountants and more.
