What it means to be a Tacoma Maritime Innovation Incubator company:

Every company that enters TMII benefits our community and our waterways in some fashion.  We are proud to have a diverse group of founders that approach this goal very differently from each other, but they all share a common goal: helping our community via a creative take on how we use water.  These companies are on the cutting edge of the Maritime Industry and are doing things no one has ever done before in ways no one has ever tried.  Through a stringent selection process, TMII encourages only the very best in Maritime to locate themselves in the South Sound, interact with community and municipal leaders to impact policy pushes, and to be an example for the next generation of companies.
