1776 statement on Amazon HQ2 from Jenn Maher

Statement by Jenn Maher, CEO of 1776

 

“We are excited to welcome Amazon.com as our newest neighbor in Arlington, Virginia.  When we opened our 1776 Crystal City campus in 2016, we believed in the vibrancy of Northern Virginia’s growing technology sector and wanted to be a resource to allow for further innovation and help entrepreneurs grow and startups succeed. Amazon.com’s announcement to locate one of their new headquarters into Crystal City validates this region’s tremendous assets as a hub for world class talent, innovation, and a broad based economy.”
