"Startup Arlington is an excellent way to not only reach entrepreneurs who may not otherwise have considered Arlington, but also to expand the outreach of our tech community," said Victor Hoskins, director of Arlington Economic Development. "This is an incredible opportunity for a startup to experience firsthand the various assets available to entrepreneurs here."
Startup Arlington is open to founders/CEOs of technology startups outside the greater D.C. area. Interested entrepreneurs should demonstrate how their business could specifically benefit from being a part of Arlington's growing tech community.
Applications are being accepted online through January 31. Three finalists will then be asked to submit video presentations for consideration, which will be open for public voting in February. The winner will begin his/her time in Arlington in April.

Arlington, Va., is a world-class residential, business and tourist location that was originally part of the "10 miles square" parcel of land surveyed in 1791 to be the Nation's Capital. Slightly smaller than 26 square miles, it is the geographically smallest self-governing county in the United States, and one of only a handful with the prized Aaa/AAA/AAA bond rating. Arlington maintains a rich variety of stable neighborhoods and quality schools, and has received numerous awards for Smart Growth and transit-oriented development. Home to some of the most influential organizations in the world – including the Pentagon – Arlington stands out as one of America's preeminent places to live, visit and do business.
