Spokane: Home of America's Leading Digital Downtown
The Terabyte Triangle, an urban cluster of more than 150
technology-based companies and many "smart" buildings
-- both old and new -- gives businesses the advantage of
high performance Internet connectivity
at speeds up to 20 gigabits. Multiple providers of fiber optic
and wireless connectivity make the Triangle one of the most wired,
and also one of the largest wireless, metro areas anywhere.
The Triangle is ideal for e-commerce, software development, and multi-media businesses
that rely on the Internet. Additionally, there are new buildings with state of the art
wet labs, ideal for bio-tech.
"Spokane is a high-tech hotspot"
-- Network World
"Thick technology, not thick carpets"
was the founding principle of the Triangle, over a decade ago. Today, the Triangle has
become a "Near Perfect" place to locate an innovative or technology-based business. Some of the most
technology savvy building owners and agents are ready to provide ideal "plug-and-go"
locations for anyone from small startups up to monster branches or expansion projects for existing
companies. Local funding is available to companies in many forms -- local Angel Funds, Venture Funds,
and special financing tools, such as the Sirti Technology Growth Fund.
Spokane's downtown business cluster
is roughly defined by a triangle shape, but is more specifically
defined by a commitment to livable modernity.
Downtown Spokane's true value is the mix of classic and modern
Downtown is the focal point of regional
energy and creativity, offering an architecturally rich heritage, the beauty of the Spokane
River, and network connectivity to the global community. The Triangle's historic buildings
pay tribute to Spokane's silver boom, timber industry and railroad empire of the past.
New buildings showcase the area's growing commitment to bio-tech, datacenter, and medical systems
Plus, the Triangle contains scores of restaurants, a thriving nightlife, the region's best
shopping, and of course, Nordstrom.
The Triangle includes the nation's fastest growing
University District, with more than 11,000 students, from Eastern Washington University,
Gonzaga University, Washington State University, Spokane Community Colleges and Whitworth University, as well as
seven research centers. A large selection of degrees are offered, from undergraduate to Masters to PhD.
If you're looking to relocate your
business where power is plentiful, people are friendly, and living
is good, the Terabyte Triangle is your place to get connected.
