This coming Wednesday, August 24th from 5:30-7:30pm at One Pacific in downtown Tacoma, we will be participating in a local event hosted by the City of Tacoma. Participating companies will be sharing the key reasons they decided to locate and build software companies in Tacoma. The event will highlight what we are are doing and will include companies that are building software platforms aimed at the retail store management (Accumula) and wealth management solutions (RedQuarry).
Tacoma has long been known for an economy based largely on transportation, manufacturing, natural resources and private wealth management. More recently the City has been expanding the economic footprint to create opportunities that support the needs of private technology companies, wether its commercial space, well qualified staff or work life balance, you can find it all in Tacoma.
In terms of community we are very pleased with the cost of living, primary education and the consistent growth in entertainment, restaurant and leisure activities. It is a great place to raise families, with so much to do outside of work from the Point Defiance Zoo, Ruston Way Esplanade, Cheney Stadium, Theatre & Arts and much more.
If you are looking for a place to start, build or expand your technology company Tacoma should be on your shortlist.
