RealLIST Startups: Check Out the Top 20 DC Companies to Keep Your Eye On In 2023

We’re back, folks.

If you’ve been following for a while now, you come to every January eagerly awaiting the newest iteration of our annual RealLIST Startups.

If you’re new here, though, here’s the RealLIST breakdown: Each year, we compile a list of 10 official honorees and 10 honorable mentions to recognize local startups that we think you should know about. These roundups ultimately highlight the top 20 startups that we think have tremendous potential for growth in the new year. We generate this list by combing through our own coverage, accelerator selectees, recommendations and the other mysterious ways we keep track of y’all.
