Our panelists will share personal stories on how they became entrepreneurs and the unique challenges they've faced along the way. From navigating the startup ecosystem to identifying investment opportunities and accessing funding, our panelists will offer valuable insights and strategies.

If you are an aspiring entrepreneur, interested in venture capital, or just curious to learn more about the start-up world, don’t miss this opportunity to get inspired and connect.

This event is sponsored by DC Startup Women, a sub-group of the overall DC Startup Community. Our mission is to provide a supportive and genuine space for female founders and funders in the DMV area. We understand the unique challenges and opportunities that women face in the startup ecosystem, and our goal is to foster impactful support and connections that lead to growth and success.

This event is also sponsored by WGXC DC (Women and Gender eXpansive Coders DC), a new organization that spun off from what was formerly known as Women Who Code DC.
