Washington Editor-at-Large Steve Clemons will sit down with 1776 Co-Founder​ and Co-CEO​ Evan Burfield to discuss innovation in Washington, a city where the worlds of tech and government collide. A DC-area native, Burfield will share insights from his own entrepreneurial experiences and from leading the DC-based global incubator and seed fund. He’ll talk with Clemons about how 1776 is using the energy and potential of the startup community to make positive change in a risk-averse city.
