DC Startup Week Kickoff Event:

Creating Diversity in Tech 

DC Startup Week consists of one week of events to recognize, engage and celebrate the promising entrepreneurs in our city. Washington DC has a vibrant startup community. It is home to 70K startups, small businesses, 75K co-working spaces, 70K incubators and accelerators.
You can't have diversity without inclusion. We've seen the stats that show increasing diversity can help business strive. Yet there is still a long way to go. Please join us in this panel discussion which will feature DC's leading diversity and inclusion experts as we share how far we have come, where we want to be, and how founders and change-makers can be champions for inclusion in their ecosystem.
The Global Policy Institute will be holding the kick off event of the DC Startup Week on September 11th.
