Join Us on March 29th at West End Public Library from 6:30-8:00pm

Join Project 500 for monthly events featuring successful new majority local founders, innovators, educators, investors and policy makers. Our goal is to highlight experts who can share lessons learned on the road to building great companies as well as engage leaders who can help advance entrepreneurship in our local ecosystem.

Due to popular demand, we will be hosting a public forum to better connect the community to DC Government. The Town Hall event will provide a venue to share our struggles and support, from diverse perspectives like entrepreneurs and investors to ecosystem builders and support organizations. We invite you to join us for a candid dialogue, networking with amazing founders, access to one of the many DC Public Library locations, and of course feed the inspiration craving to continue the entrepreneurial grind.
