Discovery Point: Meet The New D.C.-Area Development That Joins Local Talent With National Business
As the D.C. metropolitan area continues to rise through the ranks of scientific and tech powerhouses, it has proven to be an area brimming with top talent, and companies are taking notice. Corporations like Boeing and Raytheon Technologies have announced plans to relocate their headquarters to the area, sparking interest from other companies across the country.
Home to several of the nation’s top universities, there is no shortage of young, educated professionals in the D.C. area looking to dive into science and tech careers.
