Aaron’s Story / Inclusive Innovation In DC


Like most people in DC, Aaron Saunders started his career in government contracting, but later achieved his dreams of starting his own tech company. Over the past several years, he’s grown Clearly Innovative into a leading mobile development firm and is now entering the education space in partnership with the Office of the Mayor, Howard University and Luma Labs.

IN3, which stands for the ‘Inclusive Innovation Incubator’ is dedicated to creating an intentional space for diverse innovators in the District to develop their skills. Set to open on April 17th of this year, it is the first of its kind in the nation and is focused on identifying and growing a diverse tech community in the District. IN3 aims to improve the tech and business industry in Washington, DC by creating a collaborative environment that provides resources, training, mentorship, workshops and office space to support under-funded startups and businesses in the District.
