DC’s first Entrepreneur Week gives Washingtonians the chance to turn big ideas into big business.
By Kinne Chapin
Held from November 15-19, DC’s first annual Entrepreneur Week wants to connect business leaders with entrepreneurs and local students in order to build relationships and fortify DC’s entrepreneur culture. How will the week accomplish such a lofty goal? Through panel discussions, round tables, and forums that will give attendees the chance to solicit advice from icons such as Ted Leonsis of AOL, Tim O’Shaughnessy of Living Social, and Ken Langone, co-founder of The Home Depot and former New York Stock Exchange director. The topics of these sessions offer something for every budding business mogul- from Social Media Marketing to the Future of Wealth Management. Ready to network? Passes to round tables and pitch sessions are available on the DC Entrepreneur Week website. Not an entrepreneur but feel like expanding your horizons? The week’s kickoff event on November 15th, a forum on Unleashing Ideas, will be held at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business and is open to the public.
