What is Collaborate?

The nation's leading entrepreneurs and innovators are gathering in Washington, DC for two days of
engaging conversations, and hands on learning. Join us.

 

Our Promise:

This is not the conference you have learned to accept.

You will not be bored, you will be inspired. You will not be lectured, you will learn by participation. You will not feel stupid or inadequate, but empowered by your exceptional peers. 

You will leave invigorated with new ideas, new skills, and new relationships. Collaborate is an experience you will remember for years to come.

Will you be there?
