OUR STORY

BEACON was a community-led campaign to make Washington, DC the most influential and supportive city for women entrepreneurs. Since 2016, its efforts served as a catalyst to connect women entrepreneurs to each other and to the resources they need. By funding 30 women-led organizations, supporting over 3,000 women founders, publishing place-based insights, and elevating the brand and expertise of all women, BEACON charted a contemporary approach to inclusivity. A case study and mini-documentary on its approach will be released in Fall 2020.​

Through legacy partners, Street Entrepreneurs,  Hera Hub DC, and the Office of the Chief Technology Officer, BEACON will continue to connect founders, investors and resource providers to events and opportunities via the BEACON newsletter. Don't miss out!
