Why This Matters

When we consider the DMV, we tend to think of politics — 'This Town', 'The Swamp,' among others. But did you know that the Greater DC region is ranked 5th among the top 10 life sciences clusters in the United States based on NIH funding, venture capital funding, patents, dedicated lab space, and jobs in the industry? 

Since the early 2000s, the i-270 Corridor, stretching from Northern Bethesda to Frederick, encompassing Rockville and Gaithersburg, has been a hotbed for tech and life-science companies to set up shop and recruit top talent. So what comes next for the i-270 Corridor as 2019 comes to a close? 

Join the region's top developers and life-science companies as we discuss the success of the i-270 Corridor and its great potential in years to come. It's a Bisnow event you don't want to miss!
