Philadelphia-based co-working company Benjamin’s Desk is finalizing a deal to absorb D.C.-based incubator 1776, according to sources familiar with the situation — though, 1776 denies any such talks are in place. The deal, first reported by local tech executive coach Glen Hellman, is expected to close in October, according to multiple sources close to the transaction but not authorized to speak on the record.
The organization is an offshoot of the Global Cities Initiative. The region lags behind on exports - and now a new nonprofit is looking to raise $1 million to help businesses sell their products and services overseas. The Greater Washington Export Center is one of the end results of the region's entrance in early 2016 into the Global Cities Initiative, a program by the Brookings Institution and sponsored by JPMorgan Chase to develop export strategies for 29 cities around the world.
When the nation's economy is bad, people stay in the Washington region. But when times are good across the country, Greater Washington sees more residents leave than move here, a trend that is only increasing - and one that bodes poorly for the region's ability to attract top talent and grow its economy. The findings are one of the many details to come out of 51-page report analyzing domestic migration patterns in Greater Washington from 2000 to 2015.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
