Upcoming Partnership Highlights

We're starting out this week with exclusive access for the BEACON community! 

Join us in VIP at the Local First Awards, learn how to blend tech + social impact at the Public Good App House, connect with entrepreneurs and business professionals at ForoMET, then tackle your venture's toughest challenges with a design sprint workshop! 

Celebrate the makers, entrepreneurs, and businesses who make DC unique, and who create positive impact across the city.

Join Think Local First DC for the Inaugural 2017 Local First Awards.

Think Local First advocates for local economy leaders, and addresses economic, environmental, racial, and social equity so everyone can enjoy shared progress in our rapidly changing city. As a way of saying thank you for your contributions to the city we all love, Think Local First is offering a limited number of VIP tickets to Beacon.

Since Think Local First DC has existed for 11 years so we thought it was only appropriate to offer these exclusive tickets to you for $11.
