Event description

Description

Building something new can be difficult. Balancing your other day-to-day responsibilities can be even harder. So how do you know when you’re ready to turn your side hustle or startup idea into a full-time business?

On June 26th, the D.C. Startup Leadership Program (SLP) is hosting an event with local investors and business mentors that will help guide startups on their path to prosperity. If you like the event and people you meet there, we invite you to apply to our accelerator that launches this fall. What to expect:

  • Investor, entrepreneur, and mentor roundtable discussion (product-market fit, fundraising readiness, and more.)
  • Interactive ​Q&A
  • Networking and socializing

Confirmed panelists:
