Economic Development target iconBellevue is known as a hub for global business. We attract the best – a highly educated, entrepreneurial and talented work force. The best choose Bellevue – we are home to headquarters for global businesses as well as innovative startups that are moving beyond the garage.

The city does all the things it needs to provide an attractive business environment. Infrastructure is ample and in excellent condition, including roads, rails, high-speed data, reliable electricity and clean water. Business regulation is fair and the tax structure is attractive. The city, region and state offer appropriate incentives to locate business in Bellevue. Affordable and flexible workspaces nurture start-ups and entrepreneurial businesses.

We provide the lifestyle, amenities and institutions that attract the next generation of business leaders and innovators: high-end entertainment, outdoor recreation, exceptional K-12 and higher education, high-capacity transit and a green and sustainable environment. Our educational institutions inspire innovation and train the talent needed to support our high-tech sector right here in Bellevue.

We foster a diversified suite of business activities. We support our existing and traditional sectors including retail, auto sales, financial services, aerospace and light industrial businesses. We are a growing center for a broad range of technologies – including software, mobile communications and medical devices and services. Our arts and cultural opportunities, shopping and proximity to major recreational activities make us a premier destination for tourism and conventions.

Council’s Two Year-Priorities for Economic Development

  1. Implement Bellevue's economic development plan, specifically addressing the two-year goals of the plan.

  2. Create a regional economic development strategy that attracts, supports and retains global talent, business, and employers within the region by recognizing the value of public and private regional networks and pipelines in order to build an excellent quality of life and strong economy in which individuals, companies, and communities can flourish.
