Technology Alliance Report
Technology is driving innovation across the state and throughout our top industries. The Tech Alliance wanted to better understand how this shift was affecting Washington’s workforce, companies, and communities. In partnership with the economic impact firm, Community Attributes, we dug into the data and stories that underlie Washington’s tech-driven economy. This report is the result.

Apples. Power. Healthcare. Technology is central to innovations in each of these sectors - changing the way business is done, improving efficiency and requiring fewer natural resources, while also causing shifts to the workforce.

This report explores tech-driven economic shifts across the state. Click the map to explore by geography and see both the penetration of tech-related jobs and the production of degrees in those areas. Or click on the industry-specific icons to delve into the life-cycle stories of where and how technology is changing the apple, power, and healthcare sectors.

The picture that emerges is one of a diversified economy dependent on the development of new technologies, the adaptation and application of those technologies, and the required shifts in the workforce (new degrees, retraining, etc.). The strength of this economy depends on our collective commitment to supporting those elements that make this growth possible - education, the entrepreneurial & research climate, and distribution and access to opportunities. This is where the Tech Alliance is focused. Join with us in this commitment.
