AED partnered with the Alexandria Economic Development Partnership (AEDP) to sponsor these startups along with 5 others from Alexandria. In March, AEDP and AED conducted an open submission process inviting Alexandria and Arlington-based startups to apply for the opportunity to attend the conference as a sponsored startup to showcase their innovative products and services on a national platform. Through the call for submissions and match process, Alexandria and Arlington selected 10 startups to join them in New Orleans later this month. With proven products and dedicated founders, these early-stage startups are a fantastic representation of NOVA’s growing and diverse startup community.Topic: BIG Update
