Capital One is behind D.C.’s new free creative workspace

A new space has opened in D.C.’s Ward 8 to host artists who specialize in everything from sewing to circuit-making — all for free for the ward’s residents.
The creative-tech hub, dubbed Makerspace, comes from partners Capital One Financial Corp. (NYSE: COF) and the Community Preservation and Development Corp. It is mirrored off of similar community gathering places for people to make their goods rather than investing in their own industrial spaces or expensive machinery.
