BEACON Awards Celebration

Dock5 at Union Market

Join us for an evening of women's empowerment as we celebrate the 2017-2018 BEACON grantees! The party will feature live musical performances by DC's top women artists, a DJ, and meaningful connections with women across D.C.'s start-up scene.

BEACON is a community-led initiative to make D.C. the most influential and supportive city in the nation for women entrepreneurs. BEACON runs the District's largest online directory of women-owned businesses and resources for women entrepreneurs, and in 2017 will award $50,000 to organizations supporting DC-based women entrepreneurs. BEACON hosts strategic programming, facilitates connections, and promotes the involvement of women entrepreneurs in opportunities across the District.
