The West Coast’s Premier Multi-Industry Innovation Cluster focused on the digital revolution in Advanced Manufacturing, Aerospace, Life Science, & Clean Tech.
Soundview Innovation Campus will be a 500,000-square-foot world-class innovation campus designed to facilitate collaboration among today’s most forward-thinking minds and the exponential technologies they utilize, including digital design, AI applications, blockchain, rapid prototyping, testing and lab space, and large-scale production, all on a single integrated campus.
Located amidst the Puget Sound’s hotbed of renowned engineering, software and technical talent, SIC is the ideal scale-up destination for innovators seeking a highly skilled workforce, and an abundance of affordable space to scale.
Cross-fertilizing the most innovative ideas in science, medicine, and engineering.
SIC will integrate multiple industry sectors in one campus for cross-fertilization of ideas, open innovation, and joint problem solving from a diverse mix talented thinkers and doers.
Start-Ups, Scale-Ups, SMEs, and MNEs from industry sectors including Aerospace, New Space, Cleantech and Life Sciences will be collocated within the same ecosystem, creating a neutral platform for collaboration.
Innovation, Prototyping, and Production: The Power of Colocation
Reduced cost. Teams have ready access to affordable talent, shared fabrication space, and exponential technologies needed to speed development and scalable growth through modular expansion.
Reduced risk. Specialists across disciplines can collaborate quickly to identify and solve problems, changes can be digitally designed, prototyped and tested, and people and equipment more flexibly deployed.
Accelerated innovation. The campus is designed to create an environment for exchanging ideas and spurring new thinking. Programming at Soundview-hosted programs will allow tenants and others to hone entrepreneurial skills and business acumen.
Exposure to customers and investors. Soundview is centered in one of the largest markets in the world, and adjacent to a super cluster of aerospace customers and capital providers. Investors will benefit from the opportunity to defray costs and reduce risks by scaling within an established and supported infrastructure.
A Proven Record in Advanced Manufacturing, Life Sciences, and Clean Energy
SIC is located at the heart of the country’s booming Pacific Northwest, a region experiencing a dramatic expansion of disruptive technologies and the engineering and technical talent they employ. Talent spans multiple industries, including software development, AI, engineering, advanced logistics, and advanced manufacturing.
Adjacent to Boeing’s 787 and 777-X Facilities
Located in Everett, Washington, adjacent to the Boeing factory the Seattle Times called “the future of not only Boeing, but an entire region,” the campus is planted amidst a remarkable concentration of specialized knowledge in aerospace technology, applied materials, robotics, sensors, life sciences, and clean tech.
Sixteen miles from Soundview, the city of Bothell is abuzz with biotech. 25,000 scientists, engineers, and manufacturers continue the city’s decades-long legacy, creating the tools and processes used by medical professionals the world over.
Silicon Valley’s Second Home
In addition to serving as the world headquarters of Amazon, Microsoft, Zulily, Zillow, Expedia, and Tableau, a swath of other established tech firms are planting roots in the area, including Google, Facebook, Twitter, Salesforce, Apple, PopCap Games, Isilon, Dropbox, Uber, SpaceX, Axon, Palantir, and Pivotal Labs.
Tax Incentives: Zero State Income Tax–and More
Bolstered by direct access to all major transportation infrastructure, as well as state and local tax incentives, the region is rapidly becoming a global leader in stimulating—and sustaining—industry-shifting innovation.
Surrounded by talent, technology and infrastructure,
the future of innovation is here.
Scale up where affordable talent is abundant.
Don’t squander your team’s genius and productivity in I-5 traffic.
As rents skyrocket in South Lake Union and Redmond, experts in AI, software, life sciences, engineering, and big data increasingly live in Snohomish County.
But their commute time to SLU or Redmond is killing their productivity and sanity.
De-risk your scale-ups by meeting the biotechnicians, data scientists, and aerospace engineers in a single ecosystem where they live: Snohomish County.
