Incubators and Accelerators: Various Greater Washington Region Options for Entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs face a myriad of options when it comes to incubators and accelerators. The Greater Washington region has a number of successful incubator and accelerators. How are incubators and accelerators similar? How are they different? Most provide space, mentorship and training, and some provide capital. Some focus on specific industry verticals, while others are broad in scope. They can be run by nonprofits or by big corporations. Arrangements can last for a fixed short term or a few years. What are the pros and cons of doing either or none? What's an entrepreneur to do with so many options? On May 17, 2017 explore your options with an expert panel involved in incubators and accelerators.
