Washington, DC, formally known as the District of Columbia and also known as DC or Washington, is the capital city of the United States of America. Founded after the American Revolution as the seat of government of the newly independent country, Washington was named after George Washington, the first president of the United States and a founding father.
As the seat of the United States federal government and several international organizations, Washington is an important world political capital. Located on the Potomac River bordering Maryland and Virginia, the city is one of the most visited cities in the United States, with more than 20 million visitors annually.
National symbols such as the Capitol and the White House are accessible to visitors, along with dozens of other tourist attractions, which include world-class museums and important historical monuments.
Though politics seem to be the singular focus, Washington, DC, is actually home to a highly diverse and well-educated workforce. In fact, it ties with Houston and Dallas as the most diverse city with the highest percentage of residents with a bachelor’s degree or beyond.
In the last years, many venture capital firms pumped more than $700 million into new DC-area tech companies. With a steady economy, thanks in large part to the federal government and many government agencies as potential customers, small businesses can find a solid business environment in the Washington, DC, metro area.
