Meet Our Pitch Competition Finalists!
By DC Startup Week
We can’t believe DCSW 2019 is NEXT WEEK! While the week is jam-packed with exciting workshops, keynotes, panels and happy hours, we like to end it with a bang.
Our Pitch Competition is something we look forward to every year. We receive hundreds of applications in the weeks leading up to DCSW and the finalists are hand selected by our team. On Friday, September 13th at 5pm in The Hatchery – AARP’s Innovation Lab, these finalists will have the chance to pitch their companies to the crowd. Once the pitches are complete, judges will deliberate and select the 1st and 2nd place winners who will receive cash and in-kind prizes.
