Events Roundup is a column in which we highlight events happening in the D.C. area each month. Got a submission? Email us at so we can consider it for our next roundup.

2Gether-International, a nonprofit on a mission to help D.C.’s disabled population create and execute business ideas, is hosting its Disability Startup Pitch Competition this evening. The event kicks off at 6 p.m. and will feature pitches from five entrepreneurs with disabilities who are competing for a chance to win some seed funding.


This event comes after the nonprofit made a pivoted its accelerator to virtual instruction back in March, and following founder and CEO Diego Mariscal’s Culture Builder of the Year win at the 2020 Awards this October.

The pitch competition will be judged by a panel of startup experts and audience members. Virtual space for the event is limited so register soon if you plan to attend.

As we prepare to head into 2021, catch one of these professional development events before the year ends:
