In my last email I neglected to tell you about two events that might interest next week:

12/5: Tech Cocktail Sessions DC: Building Your Team (RSVP) is happening. Starting a business is hard. Building it into a successful company is even harder. Come learn first hand from entrepreneurs who've done it.


12/6: The Swedish Embassy wants DC Tech Meetups to come to their Innovation Ambassadors & Future of Stem Sessions. Check it out -- RSVP links at the bottom.

Have a great weekend!
