has partnered with Arlington Economic Development to bring you this story.
Do you currently live outside the greater DC area? Do you want to change that? If you're a cool startup founder or CEO, Startup Arlington wants you to, and they have the grant to back it up.
Who Can Apply
Startup Arlington is aimed at entrepreneurs from outside the greater DC area who are interested in locating their business in Arlington, an urban area located right across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. Startup Arlington is looking to accept those with a business that could benefit from being in the area and gaining access to Capital area agencies or resources.
Any applicants must be at least 21 years of age, a U.S. citizen, and currently be the founder/CEO of a technology company not currently based in the greater DC area but who would be available to reside in Arlington if selected for the period of April 1 until June 30, 2017.
Applications will be evaluated on criteria including just how much the location change would be beneficial for the company to the background experience of the founding team and their overall business plan and growth potential.
