The kickoff event will be held this Friday, May 19, 2017, at 6 PM at IN3 Incubator, 2301-D Georgia Ave, NW Washington, DC . The competition is open to the public and will be streamed live.
“There is no question that when young people have opportunities to discover and nurture their talent, they can demonstrate their brilliance, inventiveness, and resourcefulness,” said co-founder Marcus Noel. “This Thursday will see some of the area’s brightest high school entrepreneurs pitch their business ideas and products to some of our country’s most successful entrepreneurs and a chance for real and substantive support to grow and nurture their venture.”
