2016 Startup Census Report

To better understand the dynamics of our region’s innovation economy Fosterly has completed the first annual Startup Census for the Washington Metropolitan region. Over the course of six months, Fosterly surveyed hundreds of startups and analyzed the data to produce this comprehensive report.

We hope that this report will enable public and private sector leaders to make more informed decisions regarding policy and investments that impact the community.

The 2016 Census is made possible by these sponsors.
