Every business deserves an opportunity.

Washington Opportunity Networks (WON) is a Washington State Department of Commerce initiative to help connect small, BIPOC, rural, and women-owned businesses hardest hit by the COVID pandemic to the funding and support they need to recover and grow.

WON will:

  • Leverage what we learn from a Technical Assistance Service Provider survey to build TA capacity.
  • Learn from a Landscape Scan to identify funding opportunities.
  • Develop a targeted matchmaking pilot program to connect businesses owners, especially those experiencing barriers to access, with technical assistance resources and investors.
  • Provide financial expertise and deal structuring support for investment-ready opportunities.
  • Build an Investor-Entrepreneur Relations Program to support matching of investors and entrepreneurs.

Work with WON

Let’s work together to connect Washington small businesses.
