Creates Internship & Apprentice Program for D.C. Residents; Takes Larger Office Space Under 10-Year Commitment
Separately, CEO Tim Hwang Named to Washington Business Journal’s 40 Under 40
FiscalNote, the Washington DC-based company that dramatically improves the way organizations engage with government, today announced a multilateral agreement with the District of Columbia Mayor’s office that will keep the innovative enterprise software company in the district for another 10 years.
FiscalNote created the government relationship management (GRM) category a year ago with the first comprehensive engagement platform, services, and mobile application. The company this month celebrates its fourth anniversary.
“Given FiscalNote’s unique position at the intersection of technology and policy, we hoped to be able to stay in the District for our next wave of expansion,” said Hwang. “The Mayor’s office partnered with us to develop the right incentives that enable us to remain here. We’ll use those resources to invest in training, apprenticeship and internship programs for D.C. residents over the life of the agreement.”
The deal is unique in that the benefits will exclusively serve District residents, rather than just creating jobs that could go to non-residents.
“We’re committed to helping D.C. residents level up with more technical and marketable skills,” added Hwang. “We look forward to bolstering residents’ ability to achieve greater technical literacy.”
Fifty-three FiscalNote employees currently live in the District of Columbia. The company’s more than 120 team members work in offices in the District, New York City, and Seoul, South Korea.
FiscalNote’s new headquarters will occupy a full floor of premier Washington address 1201 Pennsylvania Avenue.
