Meridian Apartments Welcomes SXSW Winners, WDCEP and TechBreakfast

Thursday August 27, 2015

This summer, Meridian Apartments donated living accommodations to Quorum, an online legislative strategy platform, as the winners of the Washington DC Economic Partnership’s (WDCEP) “Live Free in DC” contest at the 2015 South by Southwest Festival (SXSW) in Austin, TX. Applicants to “Live Free in DC” were reviewed by a panel of select board members of Accelerate DC, a mentor-venture program created and managed by the WDCEP. The judges considered the benefits a company would receive from a Washington, D.C.-based location including potential customers, partnerships and resources. On July 28th, TechBreakfast, WDCEP and Voyage Control hosted a summer celebration at Meridian for the DC tech community to meet Quorum and connect with some of the region’s top tech startups, mentors, advisers, investors and innovators. MVT restaurant, Texas de Brazil, catered the event, which attracted more than 300 guests.
