Strengthening Washington’s Smallest Businesses

At the Washington State Microenterprise Association, we support Microenterprise Development Organizations (MDOs), regional leaders that assist Washington businesses with five or fewer employees. MDOs help entrepreneurs earn more, innovate, grow, and contribute to the Washington State’s economy through services such as training, technical assistance, microloans, and advocacy.

What We Do

Technical assistance, best practices methods, and other tools help MDOs assist microbusinesses so they can grow and improve their capacity and operations.
