Redmond benefits from a unique partnership between local government, business and the community, to create a truly “business friendly” environment. This ecosystem allows big business to access a richly skilled, technology-savvy workforce while the encouraging smaller businesses to flourish and grow. A number of world renowned Global 500 corporations already call Redmond home including Microsoft, Genie, Aerojet, Honeywell, Nintendo, and AT&T. They, along with other national and globally recognized names, employ hundreds of thousands in the Puget Sound Region.
Redmond fosters a thriving and innovative community. Located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and surrounded by the Puget Sound region, Redmond is fast becoming the place to be for culture, cuisine and overall quality of life.
