Launch the 2022 Business Accelerator Program

SEATTLE, WA —The Northwest Mountain Minority Supplier Development Council (Northwest Mountain MSDC) partnered in developing and launching the Port of Seattle, Business Accelerator Program.

The Northwest Mountain MSDC and the Port of Seattle officially kicked-off the two-month Business Accelerator Program for minority and women owned small businesses on Wednesday, September 7, 2022. The select 13 cohort associates met, introduced their businesses, networked, and began relationship building with Port of Seattle Executives and some of the selected mentors.
