Matthew Voorhees, president and CEO of Anybill, Inc. spoke to an audience of more than 100 local executives at the Washington, DC Economic Partnership's June 11, 2008 discussion meeting, "Are We Building DC as the Knowledge Capital of the World?"

We founded Anybill in Rockville, MD, enlarged the group in Bethesda and, just a year ago, moved to our current 15th Street address. Our central DC location allows our senior staff and me to meet face-to-face with our national customers and market partners on a moment's notice.

"Washington's great administrative progress in the last eight years now enables the city to begin addressing business growth in a strategic way. We must take greater advantage of our knowledge assets and communicate their value to decision makers outside the area," said Matthew Voorhees, president and CEO of Anybill, Inc. accounts payable software to an audience of more than 100 executives at the Washington, DC Economic Partnership's June 11, 2008 discussion meeting, "Are We Building DC as the Knowledge Capital of the World?" Voorhees was part of a panel consisting of Vivek Kundra, Chief Technology Officer of DC, Steven Knapp, President of George Washington University and Anne Armstrong, President of 1105 Government Information Group who explored Washington's growing role as a global center for collaboration among technical and scientific research, ngo and not-for-profit, business, government and social experts and institutions.

Voorhees noted that business in Washington is far bigger and more dynamic than rows of Federal offices and a routine flow of tourist buses might imply. "Washington offers myriad extraordinary advantages to nearly every type of business. What most people - including many of our own government and corporate leaders - don't realize is the unique nature, concentration and extraordinary depth of the area's knowledge assets."

Universities, large venture capital groups, key specialized legal resources, corporations and government were among the Washington groups who routinely collaborate, said Voorhees. "Many organizations, often without realizing it, benefit from the area's high concentration of specialized knowledge-based institutions. In no other city would my company have such abundant access to two of our most important audiences: not-for-profit associations and public accounting firms."

In describing the importance of being in the District of Columbia, Voorhees cited his own company's experience in moving ever closer to the heart of Washington. "We founded Anybill in Rockville, MD, enlarged the group in Bethesda and, just a year ago, moved to our current 15th Street address. Our central DC location allows our senior staff and me to meet face-to-face with our national customers and market partners on a moment's notice."
