Washington D.C.’s economy has experienced a dramatic shift from a government town with industry that relied primarily on the public sector. A recent report from Cushman & Wakefield listed Washington, D.C. as the #3 “Tech City” in the nation (behind San Jose and San Francisco). With intensified capital investment, a highly educated workforce, and an emphasis on attracting and retaining talent through livability, the D.C. metro region has transformed into an economic powerhouse with an emphasis on technology. D.C. has been able to entice expansions and relocations from the country’s top firms, most recently with Nestle and Yelp, who now call the metro area home. In the hunt for Amazon’s HQ2, Washington, D.C. is considered a favored contender amongst a short-list of other top-tier cities.
