AOL Fishbowl Labs, Northern Virginia's premier incubator, was created by AOL in 2012 and is located on the Dulles Campus of AOL.
At Fishbowl we provide startups with the resources necessary to overcome the obstacles they face. Be it an auditorium for a programming event, conference room for a product pitch, or day-to-day work space, AOL’s headquarters is suited to help startups maximize their potential.
"Fishbowl Labs provided us with more than just a space, it provided a quality space. Meeting rooms and amenities were at our fingertips and it took away the punitive struggle of having a lease. Scheduling meetings with the main connections around campus was easier than i ever could have expected. I would advise any startup to take advantage of the resources Fishbowl has to offer" - Ric Fleisher Co-Founder of Urgently
At AOL, we understand that finding work space is just one roadblock that startups face. So, along with providing access to the lab itself, we give our companies access to numerous connections within AOL, our Fishbowl alumni network, and outside sources that aid in overcoming specific startup challenges.
