The DC startup community is more vibrant than ever. Programs championed by recently elected Mayor Muriel Bowser promote tech and innovation, and it’s one of the top cities for women in tech. In fact, check out this profile series highlighting the regional organizations lowering the barrier of entry for women and minorities in tech.
Tech Cocktail (a Tech.Co production) is searching for the word’s best startup. As we look toward the Celebrate Conference in October, we want to be sure we have gathered startups that represent the best that every region has to offer. On Wednesday, June 10, that search will find us at 1776 Crystal City where Vornado, 43 North, Saul Ewing, Crystal City. and American Airlines will help us host the DC Startup of the Year Competition & Mixer.
At a Competition & Mixer, your community gathers over cocktails, networks with local tech and startup community leaders, and rallies to support the startups gathered to demo their product. Two winners are proclaimed at this event: the Best Pitch from the evening, and the Reader’s Choice winner from our online poll. Check our events calendar to find an event happening near you, and be sure to support these startups by logging and sharing your vote:
