Boston-based tech startup moving to DC to grow its business

Though it seemed like they were moving earlier this year, recent Harvard grads and founders of Quorum will officially move to D.C. rent-free this summer as winners of the “Live Free in DC” competition held during March’s South by Southwest Interactive conference in Austin. The Washington, DC Economic Partnership announced the move in a press release.

A panel of Accelerate DC board members selected Quorum, a Boston-based online legislative strategy platform that provides quantitative insights into the U.S. Congress and features interactive visualizations and up-to-date statistics for every member, bill, vote, committee, issue area, and congressional district.

“It was our goal to host a startup in Washington, D.C. with long term potential of growth because of its location in the District of Columbia. Factors included age of company, existing revenue, media exposure, product and market fit, and sense of commitment,” says Tiffany Thacker, WDCEP’s Director of Business Attraction, Technology & Innovation in the press release. “Quorum was the perfect fit.”
