D.C.-based incubator and seed fund 1776 will officially open the doors of its new Crystal City location on Wednesday, Oct. 28 with a grand opening party. The next day, once the festivities have taken place, the incubator will host visitors at a daylong open house.
The event will give visitors “an insider view of what a day in the life of a 1776 member looks like,” organizers say. There will be master classes, networking opportunities and time to sit down with popular 1776 mentors.
The new location is the byproduct of 1776’s surprise acquisition of Paul Singh’s Disruption Corporation back in April. A damning Washington Business Journal expose in August revealed the sorry state of Singh’s investment fund before the 1776 buyout.
