Pierce County Business Accelerator Showcase to dazzle in Puyallup: Nov. 8

Join approximately 90 graduates of the Pierce County Business Accelerator at the Puyallup Fairgrounds on Nov. 8 for the second annual Pierce County Business Accelerator Showcase.

The event offers the opportunity to mix, mingle and learn more about some of the region’s most exciting and diverse businesses on the rise.

The PCBA was created in 2021 amid the COVID pandemic to serve entrepreneurs and business owners throughout Pierce County. With a focus on BIPOC, veteran and women-owned businesses, the cohort program offers training, coaching, technical assistance and networking support. To date, more than 340 businesses have graduated from the PCBA.

The PCBA is a program of Pierce County Economic Development and administered by the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber of Commerce. Asia Pacific Cultural Center, The Black Collective, Mi Centro, Tacoma Urban League and Korean Women’s Association are managing partners, and City of Lakewood is a municipal partner.

Belated congrats! The PCBA was recently awarded a VISION 2050 Award from the Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC). The awards recognize innovative projects and programs that help ensure a sustainable future as the region grows. Read more on the PSRC website.
