Bellingham has a promising sector of emerging technology based businesses as well as several well established and highly productive larger companies. With accredited technology based education programs at Whatcom Community College, Bellingham Technical College, and Western Washington University we have all the right ingredients here to produce the talent to support Bellingham’s growing technology economy. I look forward to the City playing a larger role in supporting technology based expos that promote our local companies and help them establish stronger connections with our colleges and university.
