The DC Startup Community: Micro-Documentary

The DC Startup Community Micro-Documentary

Washington, DC and its entire metro area have produced many successful tech companies in the past. America Online rooted itself in the region a couple of decades ago, and, more recently, companies like Blackboard and LivingSocial have been focal points in the tech-web-entrepreneurial action.

Since 2007, we’ve been following, covering and connecting the DC tech community, watching things change and improve significantly over the last few years. In June, we hosted our Startup Mixology Conference in DC, giving us a chance to further reflect on the current state of the region when it comes to starting up. Working with ShineOn Storytelling, we produced this video micro-documentary that spotlights the region.

    cool video. and i agree with the vc: if you have to ask for angel money to get your small business (aka tech startup) going then you're really not worthy of the money in the first place. so simple.

    btw: i hear there's a new co-working space opening on the dc mall inside cardboard boxes where entrepreneurs can work free and power laptops and hotplates (ramen noodles only please) by pedaling powercycles; and vcs pay fiverr to supply college kids to walk about after midnight making sure coding continues unabated. think it's called "code ff≠ff" (code for fun, not for funds). that's the spirit.
