Workshop: How to Start a Business in the District with Emily Rasowsky (WDCEP)


Some of DC's most successful companies have started off on the grounds of a DC univesity. From Sweet Green to Track Maven, DC students have created some of the District's top innovations. It's WDCEP's mission to help all business in DC start up and thrive-including those that evolve from a college dorm. Come hear more about doing business in DC. We'll share the resources you need to get started and grow. Hear about the business landscape in DC, funding opportunities, areas of growth for the city and how you can take advantage of the resources in your own backyard.
