1776 Receives Grant from AT&T


Today, the Washington D.C. co-working space 1776 was presented with a grant from AT&T to support the entrepreneurial use of existing and emerging technology at D.C.’s top startup prospects. This isn’t the first time AT&T has gotten involved with 1776 as they have also sponsored events, executive speakers, and featured discussions.

“We see today’s grant as a natural extension of our commitment to innovation, building on the work coming out of the AT&T Foundry innovation centers, AT&T Labs, and hackathons across the country,” says Jennifer Kuhn of AT&T.

The grant is in line with AT&T’s mission to work with students and young professionals so that America might have a developed and well-educated workforce. 1776 offers full-time immersive educational programs, long-form courses, and workshops that will all benefit from the grant funding.

When you put the two together, you see that specific events like the Challenge Cup Tour, which Tech Cocktail is proud to be a partner of, can look forward to a continued and strengthened existence. It will also extend other big-name events like their General Assembly events, Revolutionaries, and the Super Accelerator.

“We are excited to continue and solidify our relationship with them [AT&T] so that we can better help our members tackle seemingly insurmountable challenges in the education, energy, health care, government and other industries,” says Donna Harris, co-founder of 1776.
