Aquicore held a ribbon cutting ceremony at its new headquarters yesterday at 1015 1/2 7th Street, NW, Washington, DC. Aquicore is the first recipient of the Digital DC Grant to move to the Tech Corridor since receiving the award.
Brian Kenner, Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) for the District of Columbia spoke about Mayor Muriel Bowser’s commitment to innovative industries and entrepreneurship in the District, which includes investing in technology-focused training centers and workspaces.
“Today’s celebration shows the District’s commitment to attracting and growing technology and innovation in DC through bold initiatives that support local entrepreneurship, diversifying our local economy and creating new jobs for DC residents,” said Deputy Mayor Kenner.
Aquicore, one of eight companies selected for a $122,500 Digital DC grant in October, plans to double its revenue and headcount in 2015. We are working with local private owners including Brookfield, Douglas Development, Tower Companies, and BECO Management, and recently installed our low-cost sensors in 40 buildings managed and owned by the District of Columbia. We are also working on an industrial campus in Mexico.
“It is empowering to be part of a flourishing ecosystem of young companies that is supported by the local government, and we are honored that Deputy Mayor Kenner joined the ribbon cutting celebration for our first independent office,” said Aquicore Founder and CEO Logan Soya. “We look forward to continuing our growth in Washington, DC.”
