The new year is here, and with it comes a fresh group of ventures deserving our attention.

As part of a DC Inno special report, we’re spotlighting the next wave of companies poised for growth. They’re emerging from stealth mode, chasing new funding and scooping up other businesses in the process. They’ve weathered the coronavirus pandemic, altered roadmaps and repositioned themselves to attack 2021. They’re ready for what’s to come.

These startups span geography, industry, size and stage — from the budding concept that has yet to earn a buck to the matured firm eyeing its initial public offering to the newest biotech to hit the Nasdaq, and everything in between. They represent a fraction of the innovation cropping up in Greater Washington, a mere sampling of the potential the region’s entrepreneurs bring to the table.

Some names will ring a bell. Others won’t, yet. All might not make it big, but they have the foundation necessary to excel.

And we’ll be watching all the way.
