Bellevue Needs an Entrepreneurial Business Incubator

This is being reposted from a post at

It is time.  Many of us have been thinking it.  Some have been acting on it.  I’m going to go ahead and write it.  As our friends at the Greater Seattle Chamber of Commerce have been shouting to the world for a few years:  It’s Time for Business.

Too many people, myself included, despite our best intentions, have become paralyzed by our challenging times.  This has not been helped by negative stories in the media about the economy, high unemployment rate, rising prices and the threat of further inflation.

There are too many talented people, good ideas and opportunities in this area for true entrepreneurs to be sitting on the sidelines any longer.  It’s time to jump in, get a little dirty, to invest some blood, sweat and tears into making things happen.

Here in Bellevue, I believe it is time for a real entrepreneurial business incubator to be born.  This incubator would help take maximum advantage of not only the amazing amount of talent we have in the area, but quickly help move along some great entrepreneurial ideas, weed out and define others – and maybe most importantly, take advantage of the great opportunities offered by these challenging times.

Eastside Entrepreneurs Relocates to the Eastside Business Network at

BIG changes have been happening for the Eastside Entrepreneurs Social Network.  Mostly because of the monthly expenses involved, I have decided to move the group from our Ning site over to a WordPress site run on the BuddyPress theme at  While the new site is not perfect and still under development (volunteers are welcome to help)., it will serve our needs, help us all connect, post and share our events.

Your feedback is important, so if you have any ideas or suggestions, I’d love to hear them – please email me at Joe(at)

In the meantime, if you would like additional exposure for your business, I can offer you special advertising discounts at various venues, including and  In fact – I’ll just make the offer here – if you contact me directly at Joe(at), I will give you a 12 month premium listing at for only $50 – that’s a 50% discount – and also gets you a link at (which is a Google Page Rank 4 site and will help your site get ‘Google Juice’.

Welcome Eastside Entrepreneurs – Please Register Here! This is Our New Site

Although this site is still very much under development, new members can sign up, activate by email, add their own events and write blog posts.

The original Eastside Entrepreneurs site on the Ning network will be shut down in the next week if a sponsor does not step up to pay the cost of $25 a month.  We have not had many sponsors in the 4 year history and lately it’s been (embarrassingly) difficult for me to pay the $300 in fees a year with no income from the site while unemployed for the last three + years.

That’s the main reason is I’m moving Eastside Entrepreneurs to a BuddyPress WordPress site at instead of the Eastside Entrepreneurs Ning site.

Thank you very much for joining the Eastside Business Network at – we are looking forward to seeing you at some of our events!

If you still need to get back to the old site for some reason you will be able to find it at until about November 10th or so.
