Biz Talk: A ‘welcome’ to Arlington’s newest businesses

This article was written by Conor Courtney, Strategic Initiatives Manager for Arlington Economic Development.

Recently, Arlington Economic Development (AED) hosted the winter edition of its Arlington Premiere. Arlington Premiere is a semi-annual event welcoming Arlington’s newest businesses — connecting new business owners with County resources, business improvement district contacts, the Arlington Chamber of Commerce, and community leaders and resource partners.

In the second half of 2021, 620 new businesses received an Arlington business license, up slightly from the 511 business licenses issued over the same period in 2020. While starting a new business during a pandemic may be particularly challenging, the Arlington business community maintains its resilience.

Because the in-person networking experience of past Arlington Premieres cannot be replicated virtually, AED has chosen, rather, to highlight interested businesses in the hopes of gaining community support for their new ventures.

AED remains optimistic that our spring event will be in-person — please be sure to follow Arlington Economic Development on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn to stay in the loop on future opportunities to meet Arlington’s newest businesses.

Check out and support some of Arlington’s new businesses:
