The District's population and the regional economy which it anchors is expected to hit 1 million and 7 million residents respectively.  

This broad ranging discussion about the DIstrict's innovation-driven entrepreneurial ecosystem and the unique seat-of-power-nexus it occupies, will explore what the next 20 years looks like.  An exciting evolution of the ecosystem's components is happening - from its investment capital sources to its research centers to new business formation to the local-federal spend.  We will talk about how DC can leverage those components and continue to be a formidable competitor in the ultimate battles that determine success - attracting talent.
