Welcome! The City of Lynnwood is just north of Seattle and a great place to build your next startup.

Made in Lynnwood is an informal community group helping to foster a healthy local maker scene.

We collaborate with the Mayor's Office and Office of Economic Development, Edmonds Community College, Economic Alliance Snohomish County and the Northwest Innovation Resource Center.

Lynnwood for makers and startups

Affordable and accessible
Lynnwood offers many affordable options for living and working. Yet the community is located minutes from the I-5, I-405 and HWY 99, with easy access to Seattle, Vancouver, Bellevue, Redmond, Seatac International Airport and Vancouver International Airport. It is also served by Paine Field, a local regional now supporting 13 daily interstate flights to 8 cities from Alaska Airlines.

Lynnwood is also served by a large number of express bus routes making it easy to commute in and out each day. The Sound Transit Light Rail system is coming to Lynnwood in 2024.
