Editor's Notes

Hey there! Besides our stories below, here's what's new in #dctech:
  • Cameron Hardesty, founder and CEO of Ivy City-based tech-enabled flower startup Poppy, shared her company's story during the "Today Show's" She Made It segment yesterday. Check out this feature we did on Poppy's pandemic pivot earlier this year.
  • The Alexandria Back to Business (ALX B2B) program received an additional $2.4 million from the Alexandria City Council to fund a second round of grants. Apply here for a grant ranging from $5,000 to $20,000. Here are the deets on the 300+ Alexandria businesses that received grants in the first round.
  • Universal Health Services, Foggy Bottom-based George Washington University Hospital's parent company, was hit with a cyberattack across its facilities. UHS temporarily took its U.S. IT operations offline to deal with the matter. WBJ's Sara Gilgore took a deeper look at the incident.
