The Skinny on DC events

DC Tech Meetup at 6th & I Historic Synagogue

Last night I had the chance to finally check out an event at the 6th & I Historic Synagogue in my local DC neighborhood, and not just any event. The DC Tech meetup had the place packed, on the floor and up on the 2nd theater-style seating section. Talk about a ‘full house’!SAMSUNG

The theme of this meetup was interesting because it differed from all the other ‘pitch fest’ events I have attended so far. The audience was treated to traditional pitches by DC based startups but also to ‘reverse pitches’ by angel investors who have a particular love for DC entrepreneurs. We certainly felt the love in the room last night!

You can find all the pitches listed here, but my favorites were:

  • Partyista – Cool web-based free(!) service that matches party planners with event space in DC. Awesome! 
  • Luminate Health – making sense of your lab work in smart way. I love graphs, so this is a no-brainer.
  • K Street Capital – pitching over dinner. I would be OK with that.
  • Dingman Center Angels – what’s better than a whole group of angels linked to an academic setting?
