Digital DC hosted its launch party on the rooftop of City Market on O St earlier this month. Mayor Vincent Gray chose this as a platform to help bring attention to DC as the nation's forerunner city and leader in the country for tech innovation.
DJ Neekola attended the launch to help boost awareness of her tech startup, Pelonkey, as well as participate in the growing interest of DC's tech community, catching the attention of many VCs, angel investors, entrepreneurs, and many others looking into the city's growing innovative business ideas.
DJ Neekola had a great time at the launch event! Digital DC is a great initiative for startups like Pelonkey to gain recognition and get pushed to the right people who will really help take the business to the next level.
Through all of the great resources right here in DC, entrepreneurs can boost their business to the world, making Washington a bright beacon of startup innovation.
