DCfempreneur founder Lisa Shapiro is teaming up with John Yu, the owner of Office Evolution Tysons, to launch a monthly event series.

Founded in January, DCfempreneur is a community connecting D.C.-area women entrepreneurs through networking, professional events and educational opportunities in person and online, while Office Evolution Tysons provides flexible coworking and office space for startups and small businesses.

The pair’s joint venture, Startup Social, is looking to draw in local entrepreneurs to connect, collaborate and share ideas to thrive in the growing startup ecosystem here. The inaugural event, set for Wednesday, Oct. 23, will be themed “A Founders Journey,” featuring a panel discussion with four startup CEOs, speed networking, startup pitches and an open mic opportunity.

DC Startup Week organizer and Upace founder Rachel Koretsky will moderate the panel discussion. The event will be hosted at Office Evolution Tysons at 609 Westwood Center Drive, Suite 110, and food and beverages will be provided.
