DC Startup Showcase List 2009
This list is an attempt to round up in one place a snapshot of the DC and metropolitan Maryland & Northern Virginia startup presentations & demos that took place in 2009.
If you are a tech startup (or thinking of starting): you can plug in now into the Mid-Atlantic region’s growing community, including events every month (see DCTechEvents), to help grow and expose your business to the world.
Besides the list of events below, there also is Bootstrap MD – a workshop/panel format that will inspire and inform you.
