Small business is important to Snohomish County’s future economic vitality, BUT entrepreneurship is many times MORE important. Concentrus Inc. should go to the Kauffman Foundation for an entrepreneurship grant to pilot an innovative initiative for entrepreneurship by women and ethically and racially diverse groups.

The grant represents a commitment from both organizations to strategically work together to advance the participation of women in high-growth entrepreneurship.” Read more here.
