The nation’s capital may be best known for its historic monuments, museums and galleries, but it’s also a thriving marketplace for ideas and innovation making it a popular destination for entrepreneurs. In fact, the D.C. metro area has one of the top 10 best startup ecosystems in the United States with over 1,000 startups and enterprises.

To help support these local business owners as they start, run and grow their businesses, Chase for Business is inviting D.C.-area business owners to attend a complimentary, all-day expo packed with learning and networking opportunities. The event will take place at Dock5 at Union Market District (1309 5th St NE) on Wednesday, May 8 from 2-7:30 p.m. Attendees will hear directly from leading business experts and be able to network with other entrepreneurs. Activities and topics include:  

  • During the day (2 p.m. to 6 p.m.) – Participants will have the chance to sign up for personalized marketing workshops with industry experts, network with fellow business owners at The Chase for Business Octagon, and hear from local experts and market leaders in insightful talk and panel discussions. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to snap a professional headshot and stop by the local Chase for Business Marketplace with giveaways from:
  •  Entertainment and Networking (6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.) – Following the mainstage programming, The Experience: D.C. will continue with an evening of entertainment and networking, including food, drink and music. 

“Washington D.C. is home to some of the most creative and inventive business owners in the country,” said Ben Walter, CEO of Chase for Business. “They are showing up big for their customers and we want to do the same for them. We hope that they walk away from the Experience: D.C. with a renewed and energized focus, in addition to the tools and knowledge necessary for pushing their business forward.”

The Experience: D.C. is the second of three signature events being held in major small business marketings across the U.S. this year (the others are Atlanta on May 1 and Philadelphia on May 14). These signature events are intended to bring Chase’s national business resources to select cities in a way that is convenient for business owners, allowing them to learn helpful tips and gain access to the resources they need for growing their business.

“D.C.’s growing business community is the perfect representation of what happens when you mix passion with opportunity,” said Kristina Sicard, Senior Business Consultant at Chase. “Our goal is to show up and support business owners at whatever stage of the journey they’re in. We’re honored to be a part of their business journey and look forward to their continued growth.”
