Supporting Bellevue, Kirkland, Issaquah, Redmond, and Renton, (re)STARTUP425 is making a collaborative effort to connect Eastside small business owners, nonprofit leaders and sole proprietors with available business resources during the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the City of Bellevue, (re)STARTUP425, an initiative of five communities on the Eastside to support creativity, entrepreneurship and innovation, has launched this program as an added support.
“This pandemic has hit our small businesses and nonprofits particularly hard,” said Lynne Robinson, Mayor of Bellevue. “We are committed to supporting our entire community and pleased that we can offer this additional program in partnership with our neighboring cities on the Eastside.”
One-on-one technical consultations on business financial assistance programs, relevant webinars, and other resources are a part of their website. The cities have contracted with Business Impact NW to staff (re)StARTUP425’s business response team.
The program is most appropriate for small businesses and non-profits of all industries and verticals, including arts and cultural non-profits, microbusinesses like hairdressers and nail salons, and contractors.
(re)STARTUP425 was started in 2016 to support small businesses and entrepreneurs.
