Our Mission

Startup 425 provides resources and tools for and reduces barriers to entrepreneurship for all residents and workers on Puget Sound’s Eastside.

We think regionally and we work collaboratively with partners — like Greater Seattle SCORE, the King County Library System, and the Port of Seattle. We aren’t interested in reinventing the wheel or creating programs that serve niche audiences. Instead, we’re working to build a community where anyone can start — and be successful with — a small business. Startup 425 is excited to play a small role in advancing that ecosystem.

Annual Reports

During the first quarter of each calendar year, Startup 425 provides a report to its partners on its activities during the preceding year. Our intent is to provide a sense of the impact of our programming, quantify the number and diversity of people we’re serving, and share insightful participant stories.
