On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
Guest Host: Brendan Greeley
Local counties and cities are in competition against each other for the new Amazon headquarters. The District, Prince George’s, Loudoun and Fairfax, Arlington and Montgomery Counties have all offered the Seattle-based business incentives to set up shop in their jurisdictions. But what about local startups and entrepreneurs? We explore the steps local governments are taking to support internal business growth. When do these steps work and why? Members of D.C.’s tech sector join guest host Brendan Greeley to discuss the tricky balance between attracting outside business while also supporting local entrepreneurship.
