There are so many darn smart people in this town. The brains behind the digital and tech scene blow my mind. Which is why I’m not surprised that government is starting to recognize the potential and need to team up. Hello 1776! That’s the name of the new epicenter for the DC startup community. The building is now the place entrepreneurs looking to solve our nation’s biggest problems will convene. Just blocks away from the White House 1776 will help accelerate startups from around the world.. connecting them to political, intellectual, social and financial capital. This is a gem.
1776 is co-founded and led by Evan Burfield, Chair of Startup DC, and Donna Harris, who will transition from her role as Managing Director at Startup America.
