Washington, D.C. may be transforming from a government town to a technology hub. The city is home to more than a thousand tech start-ups, thanks in part to government incentives for high-tech businesses.

The city has created a “technology corridor” in Northwest — northwestern quadrant of Washington, D.C. — where start-ups are settling.
