SNO-CO’S SMALL BUSINESSES . . .

Over 90% of Sno-Co’s businesses are small and locally based. Currently they are faced with being located in a state having the one of the highest turnover rates in the country (1 business closes for every 1 that opens) and high failure rates new businesses (only 50% survive their 1st year & only 25% their 3rd.  To increase their chances for success, our local businesses need basic training and support, community members who support them and shop local, and reduced burdens, as well as better interactions, with government agencies.

WHO WE ARE . . .

Foundations Small Business Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit serving new small businesses across Snohomish County. In 2014 served over 30 businesses that were in business 7 or more months of the year. Those businesses contributed annual revenue of over $2.5 Million to the local economy, over $80k in tax dollars to the state, and over 65 jobs to Snohomish County Residents. We further had 100% success rate for 1st year businesses (vs 50% in WA) and an 89% success rate for those in years 2-3 (vs 25% in WA. . Find out more about our mission and leadership HERE.
