The new name, One Palouse, stands for our vision of unity— two states, two counties, two universities working together as one.
We serve the Palouse region by acting as a hub connecting the region's economic development resources and the entrepreneurs they serve. We are uniquely positioned to operate across state borders and within both universities to align and integrate regional economic development activity.
We accomplish this by teaming with our local economic development agencies providing connectivity and tools to identify the gaps in entrepreneurial support. We then work together to overcome those gaps and promote the Palouse as one community.
The Latah County Economic Development Council, Southeast Washington Economic Development Association and the two regional universities, University of Idaho and Washington State University, created One Palouse (formerly the Palouse Knowledge Corridor) as a forum to plan for the growth of and promote the intellectual and creative capital associated with these land-grant, research universities and the high-tech industries in this region known as the Palouse. Events have been held to convene discussions and understanding of the assets in the region, provide networking opportunities for companies and university research teams, address obstacles to progress, and other topics of interest.
