Take the Small Business Survey!

The City of Seattle Office of Economic Development has created a brief survey to ask small business owners across the city what they can do to better support your success. This information will help OED to prioritize programs and services, as well as to inform pilot projects, such as the Legacy Business Program.

The survey will remain open until July 15, 2018, contains 15 questions, and should take less than ten minutes.  Survey link:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/OEDsmallbusiness.

We know that your time is limited and valuable, and very much appreciate your expertise in helping to frame OED's work and provide the most effective tools to support your small business as well as the larger small business community.   If you have any questions about the survey, please email  Michael.Wells@seattle.gov  or call 206-684-8612.
