Next month, hundreds of women entrepreneurs and investors will be gathering in D.C. for the third annual Circular Summit.
The event features two days of workshops, networking, speeches and other events. It will be held on March 1 and 2 at the United States Institute of Peace. The goal is to help businesses grow.
“Only 2 percent of U.S. women-owned businesses earn more than $1 million in annual revenue. Now it’s time for real, impactful and systemic change,” said Elizabeth Gore, cofounder and chairman of Alice, which is hosting the event. “Last year, the power of this event became crystal clear when we heard from attendees that they secured capital from venture capitalists and angel investors, landed features in outlets, like Inc., Entrepreneur and TechCrunch, and formed partnerships with companies, like Dell and Johnson & Johnson.”
The lineup has dozens of speakers. Among those from #dctech are Susan Tynan, founder and CEO of Framebridge, Melissa Bradley, managing director of Project 500, and Kate Goodall, CEO of Halcyon.
