The Pacific Northwest is one of the world’s leaders in retail innovation. It has significant, unique, and growing retail sector players – Amazon, REI, Starbucks, Nordstrom, Costco. We also have key players in the shipping sector – Expeditors International, the Ports, and others. More importantly, though, we have consumers that are concerned about the Pacific Northwest environment. Northwest leadership will set national and international standards and help influence future trends.

Water use has been growing at more than twice the rate of population increase in the last century, and water withdrawals are predicted to increase 50% by 2025 in developing countries and 18% in developed countries. The need for global water innovation is more critical than ever. New government policies and existing process improvements aren’t enough to keep up with the rapidly increasing demand. This challenge presents an opportunity for both entrepreneurs and investors, but investment capital and deal velocity threaten to inhibit growth in the sector.
