Take a Gamble on Arlington VA: The Deck is Stacked in Your Favor

This week, AED is back at the Consumer Electronics Show promoting our annual initiative Startup Arlington which will launch in Spring 2018. Keeping within the Las Vegas theme – we’re asking startups from around the nation to gamble on Arlington, VA – and compete for an opportunity to live and work in Arlington for free! Startup Arlington provides entrepreneurs interested in growing their company within the DC Region a chance to build its company vision in our backyard.

We’re confident that startups will refreshingly find Arlington to be at the center of innovation, knowledge hubs, and opportunities for growth in industries ranging across various tech industries including cybersecurity and artificial intelligence.

Not familiar with Arlington?

  • We’re a 5-minute Lyft or Uber ride from our Nation’s Capital!
  • Home to companies like Phone2Action, Distil Networks, U.S. Department of Defense (The Pentagon), and Amazon Web Services.
  • The highest concentration of millennials per capita lives here.
  • We have 11 metro stations and a major airport named after Ronald Reagan.
  • With neighborhoods with names like Crystal City, Ballston, and Rosslyn – our suburban and urban hybrid feel has great restaurants, shopping, festivals, major universities and historical monuments to see and visit.
