Peter Corbett, shown above, is featured in a Washington City Paper story. The piece, in part, states that “For four years now, Corbett’s hybrid public relations and marketing firm iStrategy Labs—which has expanded to another office across the street, and will soon consolidate its 20 employees in even larger digs on Connecticut Avenue NW—has served as ground zero for the nascent tech industry in D.C. The giant LivingSocial in Gallery Place may have hired hundreds of people and taken hundreds of thousands of square feet in office space. But Corbett, aided by a cadre of CEO ringleaders, has been the one putting on events, connecting with universities, badgering city officials, and serving as the public face of a community that government-town Washington barely realized exists.” More at http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/articles/42990/the-social-networker-peter-corbett-helped-put-the-dc-tech/
