Are you a social entrepreneur, someone interested in the social enterprise space, or just an innocent bystander? Join us for #SocEntDC, a monthly happy hour series for the DC social enterprise community to connect, collaborate, and get to know one another.
You might have heard about #SocEntLA and #SocEntNY, a monthly happy hour series for the social enterprise communities in LA and NY. Continuing the momentum from those gatherings, we are pleased to announce #SocEntDC, launched as a collective by Invest2Innovate, StartingBloc DC, Hub DC, Compass Partners, DC Social Innovation Project, StartSomeGood, One World Youth Project (OWYP), and UnSectored. #SocEntDC aims to bring together and foster the local community on the THIRD Wednesday of every month!
