The Rent the Runway Foundation and UBS recently revealed the list of 200 women-led startups that will be convening on New York for the second annual Project Entrepreneur Intensive in April. On that list? Three #dctech names.

The two-day long workshop “ignites bold ideas by providing women access to the tools, training and networks needed to build scalable, economically impactful companies.” D.C. founders Laura Fredericks, CEO of Describli, Kate Myers, founder of Shop or Not and Janice Omadeke, founder of The Mentor Method will all be joining in.

The three will all participate in plenty of workshops and be introduced to mentors and potential investors. Omadeke has won an additional distinction: Along with participating in the Intensive, she’s one of a subset of 12 companies that will pitch in front of investors over the weekend for a chance to win $10,000 and participation in a five-week accelerator at Rent the Runway.

“These female founders are among the most promising and innovative entrepreneurs in the country, representing a wide breadth of industries, ” Lori Feinsilver, UBS head of community affairs and corporate responsibility said in a statement. “While they come to Project Entrepreneur with incredibly diverse professional and personal backgrounds, they all share a dream to drive their own success.”

Congratulations to Omadeke, Fredericks and Myers — we know you’ll make #dctech proud.
