ABOUT THE TASTE OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP

BUILD DC’s Taste of Entrepreneurship is a celebration of the very best of Washington’s entrepreneurial flavors. With beverages provided by DC area vendors such as DC Brau and Green Hat Distillers plus food from the most sought after food truck vendors (thanks to the DC Food Truck Association), this year’s event will leave you hungry to learn more about BUILD.

Guest speakers are:

Doug RandSr. Policy Advisor to the White House Office of Science and Technology (Bio)

Evan BurfieldFounder of 1776 and Chairman of Startup DC (Bio)

Sixteen teams of young entrepreneurs of BUILD will be on hand to offer their products to you. Step into the photo booth of the team Fantastic Photography, pick up a “One City” hoodie from the team TAG, or walk away with a one-of-a-kind accessory from Beautiful Bowettes. Our young entrepreneurs are not to be missed.

With host sponsor Netcito, media partner InTheCapital, promotional partner DC Entrepreneurship Week, and location (the historic Homer Atrium) sponsor Akridge – you will not want to miss out on what has become a staple of the DC entrepreneurship community.
