The DC region is exploding with new start-ups and exciting innovation, led by a new generation of entrepreneurs building the next great DC-based companies.  On February 12 join us to recognize the top young entrepreneurs that are making it happen at a fun, Mardi Gras-themed event featuring food, drink and music from New Orleans. 

Join our honored guests, event hosts, and Washington's top young entrepreneurs, their management teams, and investors, for an evening of networking and celebrating in Crystal City, Virginia, recently named by Forbes Magazine as the top city in the nation for young entrepreneurs.  We will also recognize 20 rising entrepreneurs from Generation Z who are already doing amazing things.
