Accelerators and incubators were invited to fly (in my case I took metro) to Washington for an innovation summit at the White House. It was a wonderful celebration of American hard work and ingenuity, as well as a great way to connect with fellow incubators. Thank you so much to the SBA, Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet and Kim Peyser for organizing networking opportunities, briefings about both government and private sector resources, and making us feel like real Beltway insiders.
Dwayne Moore, one of the owners of DC Born & Raised, was in attendance as an EatsPlace entrepreneur. DCB&R is currently serving dinner and brunch at EatsPlace. How far we’ve come…this is when we first met almost 2 years ago!
