Washington State has one of the highest concentrations of interactive digital media developers in the world with companies like Microsoft, Getty Images, and Nintendo, among others.
But in today's world, digital media is so abundant that it can be easy to overlook the thousands of small business opportunities created by this field. Everything from web design and video programming to video games and virtual entertainment make up this field.
Not only are multiple digital media companies already thriving in the greater Spokane region, but the presence of Eastern Washington University (EWU) in Cheney creates a major advantage for businesses in this fast-paced field.
The Computer Science, Information Systems, and Electrical Engineering programs at EWU create major opportunities for collaboration. Because of the rapidly changing nature of high tech fields, it's important that companies in digital media stay close to the cutting edge of knowledge creation in the industry.
