The 425 Launch gatherings bring entrepreneurs together to meet, talk and informally share information about the challenges and rewards of starting a new business. The program — developed by the Economic Development Committee of the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce — seeks to strengthen the community by promoting and fostering entrepreneurship. By providing a forum for aspiring and existing entrepreneurs to exchange ideas and experiences, we can improve communication and strengthen entrepreneurship in the community.
