REACH King County
Helping businesses in King County thrive and expand
As the designated associate development organization (ADO) for King County, the Seattle Metro Chamber works with existing businesses at all phases to help them stay here and expand.
Through the REACH (Retention, Expansion, and Collaboration Hub) King County program, our director of business retention and expansion, Ashton Allison, works with businesses and public partners throughout King County and its 39 jurisdictions. The REACH program is a front door for businesses - it offers assessments, connects businesses to information and resources, and acts as a matchmaker for businesses within King County.
The services below are free and available to any business in King County. Chamber membership is not a prerequisite for participation. We are committed to providing these services based on an accurate understanding of the local business community, strong local partnerships, and open communication with stakeholders.
Through REACH King County, we:
- Offer one-on-one consultation with business owners, operators, and managers to assess the most urgent needs for success and growth
- Serve as an information center and resource navigator to answer questions about benefits, exemptions and programs offered in your business’s jurisdiction
- Connect your business with other businesses in the area, small and large, to draw beneficial financial and resource-based partnerships
We are willing to work with all businesses located in King County dependent on staff capacity. Email or call Ashton Allison at (206) 389-7202 for more information and to set up a meeting.
