Dear Trustees,

I join many current and former Federal City Council trustees who are mourning the loss of Jim Clark this week. From the deeply personal connections he made with so many of us to the indelible physical impact he had on our city, Jim made Washington, DC the city it is today. He paved a path for generations of entrepreneurs who continue to shape the city as we know it. We join in solidarity with Jim’s family, with the employees of Clark Enterprises Inc., and with our Chairman Bob Flanagan during this difficult period.

Our CEO, Anthony Williams was quoted in this article regarding a new partnership between Howard University and Mayor Bowser:

"With this announcement, Mayor Bowser is taking a major step forward in supporting the District's tech and innovative sector. We recognize that access to capital is one of the biggest hurdles for the growth of DC startups. This innovative partnership with Howard University addresses that vital need while promoting DC's fastest growing industry and providing greater job opportunities for DC residents."
