Mayor Muriel Bowser Celebrates MakeOffices K Street at Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Posted January 17, 2017 by office

On January 10, District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser helped us celebrate our newest coworking space in Washington, D.C.’s iconic K Street corridor. MakeOffices members, local business owners, and tech influencers joined the District’s eighth mayor as she participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony and shared a few remarks.

While Washington, D.C. is known primarily for government – and rightfully so – there are countless tech startups, small businesses, and nonprofits contributing to the economy. Mayor Bowser pointed out that these businesses are an integral part of the District, noting that the “diversification of our economy has been key to our economic growth over the last several years.” This year, the District experienced the best financial quarter in its history, in part because of the thriving tech scene and area newcomers.

As a company whose heart is in the District, we’re proud to play a part in providing office space, amenities, and events to best set up local businesses and startups for success. MakeOffices K Street will be home to numerous startups serving the federal government along with companies of all industries and sizes, and we’re honored Mayor Bowser helped us launch our 11th location.
