OUR WORK: PAST INITIATIVES
GREATER SEATTLE PARTNERS
Challenge Seattle partnered with public and private sector leaders to establish the Greater Seattle Partners (GSP). GSP is a groundbreaking public-private partnership with a regional approach, created to advance economic growth and competitiveness for the Puget Sound region.
GSP will focus on attracting new investment, promoting international trade and growing existing industry clusters by: aggressively marketing the Puget Sound region;
recruiting targeted business and trade focused on region’s assets; using sophisticated analytics and data to tell region’s competitive story; and engaging leadership and funding from both the public and the private sector.
"The culture here in Seattle and in the Pacific Northwest is unique. Its a combination of authenticity, innovation, and collaboration that makes it a wonderful culture to build a business."
- Kevin Johnson, President and CEO of Starbucks
The Seattle region is home to people and companies that dare to do things a new way. We defined personal computing, re-imagined the coffee break, and connected the world through air travel.
Challenge Seattle is proud to be telling our region's story through the Incredible Works Here campaign, giving voice to all that Seattle has to offer. Incredible Works Here celebrates Seattle’s residents, its diversity, its environment, and its innovative businesses by telling the stories of Seattle’s incredible people and feats.
