Now you can access all of Whatcom County’s economic development services in one central place—

Our community benefits from the work of several exceptional economic development practitioners including Guy Occhiogrosso and CJ Seitz and many others. These folks have made it their mission to bring new businesses and jobs to Bellingham. New business could come in the form of startups, or established businesses relocating to expanding operations into the area. ChooseWhatcom offers tools to both.

At ChooseWhatcom, hopeful founders can access critical support like business mentorship and financing. Established businesses with hopes to relocate can search for commercial real estate and explore tax incentives.

This group of economic development practitioners comes from vast array of different organizations, each with its own mission; but collectively they call themselves Team Whatcom—signalling a unique sense of collaboration and unity of purpose.
Visit to avail yourself of the many ecconomic development services available in our community.
