Washington State: Building Business Legends
The birthplace of such business legends as Amazon, Boeing, Costco, Expedia, Microsoft, Nordstrom, PACCAR, REI and Starbucks, Washington State offers businesses, site selectors and investors a critical mass of highly skilled workers in aerospace, agriculture, clean technology, information & communication technology (ICT), forest products, life science/global health and maritime. Our culture of creativity and collaboration brought the world the age of jet travel, spawned an international coffee culture with a language all its own, built digital empires out of slivers of silicon and strings of binary code, and in the process, fundamentally changed the way people around the world shop, travel, eat, drink, relax, dress and think.
