Cultivating Growth and Creating a Brighter Future

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who made our very first Cultivate Women’s Summit, “Breaking Barriers to Cultivate Growth,” a success! During the planning process for the Enterprising Women of Color DMV Business Center Cultivate Summit, we knew we wanted to create a day-long summit curated for minority women entrepreneurs in the DMV Region to gather to build community and spark inspiration. Thanks to our event partners, the summit fulfilled its purpose as a catalyst for education, networking, development, and direct technical assistance opportunities.  

A huge thank you to all who attended and supported us! Your presence and contributions made this summit truly special. We can’t wait for what’s in store as we continue to grow and uplift each other. Stay tuned for more upcoming events!  

Thank You to Our Partners
