The Pacific Northwest Innovation Consortium (PNWIC) is focused on the innovation ecosystem of our region. Our discussions are meant to identify the characteristics of an exceptional innovation ecosystem, highlight the qualities present in the PNW and determine strategies for improvements. Our belief is that the PNW can be the nations premier region for innovation. PNWIC looks to collaborate with individuals and organizations who share this belief. We will have two kinds of meetings. The first is weekly educational meetings for innovative companies in our region. The second meeting type is monthly to discuss initiatives to strengthen the existing resources for innovation.
