Gavin Daniels, co-founding principal of Wingate Hughes Architects, was in Austin, Texas this month supporting WeDC at SXSW. The initiative, spearheaded by the Honorable Mayor Muriel Bowser and the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development Brian Kenner, promotes DC’s vibrant tech scene while encouraging the next round of up-and-coming startups to make DC their home. Gavin travels to SXSW annually with the Washington DC Economic Partnership (WDCEP) and is a firm believer that DC is more than a federal city — it’s a local city. He’s backed the startup community since the first few popped up on our map, and with WDCEP and WeDC, he shares our vibrant city message to the world at SXSW.
