Going to SXSW? Greater Seattle Partners will be there with Washington Maritime Blue and friends to showcase the intersection of our maritime, IoT, and cleantech industry sectors, and our exciting ocean startup ecosystem. On March 13th at the Capital Factory, attendees will hear from VCs investing in the maritime and blue industry as well as directors that are fostering innovation in the industry. Join us!
Today, our maritime industry is incredible vast with more than 50,000 jobs supported and $3 billion in annual gross regional product (GRP) in Greater Seattle alone. The combined total trade into and out of the Port of Everett, Port of Seattle and Port of Tacoma collectively exceeds $80 billion dollars annually. The Northwest Seaport Alliance, which is the combination of the Port of Seattle and Port of Tacoma, make up the 4th largest container gateway in the United States.
