About Us

Founded in 2016, Slingshot-NW, Inc. (dba Slingshot) is a globally focused marketing platform designed for products made by inventors and entrepreneurs of the Pacific Northwest.  Slingshot's role is to help those products achieve commercial success by aggressively pursuing a marketing strategy designed specifically for your product.

Slingshot is a strategic partner of the NW Innovation Resource Center (NWIRC) which is committed to creating economic opportunity and jobs in Northwest Washington by supporting entrepreneurial innovation. It’s the role of the NWIRC staff to provide guidance and oversight to insure that each entrepreneur has the opportunity to experience company growth and forward momentum.  To do this, the NWIRC works directly with the inventor and/or entrepreneur to bring their ideas to life from the sketch on a napkin all the way through to a fully formed, market ready product.

Once your product is ready, Slingshot will take it and launch it into the world leveraging the channels best suited for your product. Slingshot is based in Bellingham, WA and serves inventors and entrepreneurs from all five northwest Washington counties: Snohomish, Skagit, Whatcom, Island and San Juan.  Although our products originate in the Northwest, our marketplace and focus is on selling these products to the world.

If you are an inventor or entrepreneur with an idea or product with which you would like help, please contact the NWIRC.  We are both here to help launch innovative products!  


We would also like to give special thanks to Jennifer Morrow Photography for generously providing the beautiful images of the Pacific Northwest you may find throughout our site. Jennifer is a photographer located in Bellingham, WA with a focus on portrait and nature photography.  To purchase any of her prints, please visit her store on Etsy.
