2020 has brought with it one consistent thing: incredible disruption. If you've managed a business through 2020 you've managed a business through what may feel like two or three lifetimes. Joining us to share their experiences in managing across the Customer Experience are experts who have had to handle pivots, pauses, ramp ups, scale downs, and everything in-between.

The long-awaited conclusion to the 2020 Disability Startup Accelerator Program is finally here! In conjunction with DC Startup Week, 2Gether International is hosting the Disability Startup Pitch Competition which will be held Wednesday, September 16, 2020 from 6-8 PM EST. All disabled entrepreneurs are encouraged to apply for the chance to win one of two $1,000 grand prizes. There will be potential investors and other partners in attendance, as well as judges to help determine the winner of the grand prize. Judging will be based on both the visual aspect of the pitch decks and the delivered pitch, itself. The deadline for applications is September 4th, 2020. If you have any difficulties or questions, please contact [email protected] or [email protected].

This event is possible thanks to a grant from The Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED).
