Our eiw family

The Entrepreneurial Institute of Washington  and our partners have focused efforts on assisting small businesses one at a time.  These efforts have resulted in millions  of dollars in contracts, 1,000+ minutes of  FREE professional education, business partnerships, formalized mentorship-protege agreements, dozens of job placements…. Yet, over the years, we realized in order to assist more entrepreneurs we needed more dependable and successful business partners to expand our reach.  

We are blessed to have the most active and fastest growing entrepreneur base in the nation, many have found value participating in our events  that have resulted in life long partnerships that will aid businesses for years.
