The City of Bothell is accepting applications from qualified businesses to participate in a new Pop-Up Retail Incubator Program.  Learn more and apply by July 25th at  www.mercycorpsnw.org/bothellpopup.  

Bothell City Council recently approved the program to support the creation of new small businesses and provide more opportunities for minority and women-owned businesses. Funded in part by the Port of Seattle Economic Development Partnership grant, the City has also partnered with Mercy Corps Northwest to deliver this program. Mercy Corps Northwest is a global organization dedicated to transforming lives and creating lasting change, and will serve as the City’s training and financial support partner. 

Entrepreneurs and home-based businesses often face many barriers in launching a brick and mortar business.  The program will offer resources, microfinancing, mentoring and education to minority and woman-owned small businesses to help them learn about the market, improve their business skills, and generate revenue.  In addition to these resources, selected entrepreneur businesses will be offered low-cost retail space in repurposed garden sheds right in the heart of downtown Bothell next to City Hall.  

Qualified businesses can learn more and apply at www.mercycorpsnw.org/bothellpopup before July 25th.
