About the Thurston Economic Development Council and Center for Business & Innovation:

The Thurston Economic Development Council has been supporting a strong economy in Thurston County since 1982 with a mission to create a dynamic and sustainable economy that supports the values of the people who live and work in Thurston County. At the foundation of the work we do are three main principles: recruit, retain, and expand.

We work to maintain the health of local businesses by offering technical assistance and providing advocacy on their behalf. We present market opportunities to Thurston County employers, providing support for them to expand their operations. We actively attract investment and employment opportunities into our region through outreach, promotion and trade missions.

About the Lacey MakerSpace:

The Lacey MakerSpace is a physical location where people can gather to share resources and knowledge, work on projects, network, and build.

We provide tools and space in a community environment so you can start making whatever you can create. Skilled advisors will be available some of the time and we will offer classes, but often novices get help from other community users.

As a project of the Thurston Economic Development Council, makers interested in taking their creations to market gain entrepreneurial support to ensure their successful launch and growth. And with our community partners, we have a network of skilled leaders interested in the business success of our talented makers.
