DC Startup Week #DCSW 2018 Recap and Live-Streams!

Thank you for helping us make this the biggest DC Startup Week #DCSW yet! This was our third annual celebration with over 5,000 attendees throughout the DMV. The 5-day interactive week showcased hundreds of regional startups, entrepreneurs and the regions’ bustling ecosystem, helping to further foster growth within the local startup community.

DC Startup Week participants networked and gained knowledge by attending thought-provoking, informative and entertaining panels, pitch competition, hackathons, exhibitions and discussions put on by more than 50 collaborating organizations including The Mayor’s Office, several coworking places, startups, corporations, nonprofits and educational institutions.

We put together 120+ sessions with 220+ speakers in 33 locations across the city, Northern Virginia and Maryland in just one week! We couldn’t have done it without you.

We ended the week with a Pitch Competition where the local startup, Twenty Tables won cash prizes from DC Startup Week and in kind prizes from its sponsors Google Cloud, GSP, Silver Strategy, Alley Powered by Verizon and Metamer Productions.

We thank all the sponsors, speakers, participants, volunteers and venues who made this the most successful DC Startup Week to date. We can’t wait to see you at future events.
