Event Details

Hello DC!

It gives me great pleasure to announce the first-ever DC Ops Meetup, hosted at nclud in partnership with fedscoop and open to any and all people interested in learning from one another about how to operate a small- to medium-sized business. Yes... "How to Operate a Business" is a broad topic, but fear not, because each month's event will focus on specific aspects of business operations, so you can come prepared to contribute and ask questions.


Keynote Presentation

Michelle Hoffman, CEO Hoffman CFO Consulting
Mo Money Mo Problems

Michelle is a DCTECH native with extensive experience directly managing the finances of some the areas most successful SMBs. Her keynote will outline some of the more common financial missteps that small businesses take that can hurt their ability to scale or become points of failure when they do. 

Event Schedule

5:30pm - 6:00pm Meet and Greet

6:00pm - 6:30pm Keynote from Michelle Hoffman + Q&A

6:30pm - 7:30pm Networking and Beer



Who started the DC Ops Meetup?

Well, I started it, @joecorbett, a.k.a. the COO of nclud, a.k.a. that Random Nerd who loves DC+Tech. Additionally, we partnered with our friends at fedscoop and their COO @GregPoersch, to leverage their expertise in programming professional development-oriented events to make DC Ops Meetup that much better.

Why did you start the DC Ops Meetup?

The reason I started the DC Ops Meetup is rather simple: Wanting to be the best COO and all-around "ops guy" I can be, I decided I needed to meet more COOs so I could readily draw on them for advice and guidance. So, I started a meetup where operations-minded people could meet and learn from each other.

Who should attend the DC Ops Meetup?

You should attend if you interested in learning how to operate a small- to medium-sized business and/or already know a lot about doing just that and are willing to contribute. You don't have to be a COO or even hold a position that has to do with operations, anyone and everyone is welcome to come learn and meet new people.

Why is this a paid event?

Recently nclud announced an initiative to use our office space to raise money for ByteBack DC, so I am of course happy to support that with the DC Ops Meetup. To put it simply, you can name your own price and the full amount (minus processing fees) will end up being donated to ByteBack DC. You can read the full announcement here.

What's with the skunk holding a rocket launcher?

First of all, it's not a skunk, it's a honey badger, and it's holding a bazooka! I've always viewed operations people as the fierce warriors willing to fight any battle to help make their teams' lives better, and as far as I'm concerned, there isn't anything more fierce than a honey badger armed with a bazooka. Special thanks to @redtablepress for coming up with the orginal design.


Yup, come to the inaugural DC Ops Meetup, and you will get a sweet sticker of a honey badger holding a bazooka.

Want to be a speaker or program a panel?

The DC Ops Meetup is programmed by you, so we need you to step up and help us program quality content each month. If you think you have something you'd like to speak about, or you want us to hustle to find someone that does, fill out this form.
