Join us as we celebrate ten years of impact from 2Gether-International. We will honor and celebrate Disabled Founders who are alumni of our program, the leading accelerator for entrepreneurs with disabilities.

This event is a catalyst to change. Business leaders, investors, and Government Representatives will have the opportunity to meet exceptional Disabled Founders who are not just thriving in business but also flipping the disability narrative.

Similarly, members of the disability community will have an opportunity to build relationships with investors, business leaders, Government Representatives, and other advocates.

Guests will include Members of Congress and Congressional staff, Administration officials, local government leaders, representatives from the disability advocacy community, business supporters, and disabled entrepreneurs that are part of 2G’s extensive Disability Startup Network.

We invite you to join us for an evening of networking, motivating testimonials, and celebration as we flip the narrative around disability and build an entrepreneurial ecosystem that helps founders with disabilities create innovative and thriving businesses.

This is a reception-style event, with refreshments and light appetizers.

Our venue is fully ADA-compliant; ASL interpreters will be on-site with additional accommodations available. Table seating will be available.

Please contact denise@2gether-international.org for additional accommodation requests and information.
