We're all about connections and creativity. The two fuel each other, so we're facilitating the expansion of both in communities throughout Washington state and soon the U.S. See how we've grown and how you can get involved.

ABACUS has found it's roots in the heart of the Pacific Northwest, beginning specifically in the northwest neighborhood of Everett, Washington. We've since expanded into the surrounding counties, including in total, Snohomish, Skagit, and Whatcom. As we grow and meet our goals in our beta versions, we'll be expanding into King county (Hi there, Seattle!) and beyond.

“One of our goals is to make it easier for everyone to follow their passion while making connections by being the facilitators of discovery.”
