Open Discussion on Building Communities - DCommunity Managers Open House
Limited Capacity filling up

Everything we do at DC Startup Week is centered around our community and we’re constantly thinking about how we can add more value. This is why we're excited to announce that we’re putting together our first Open House for Community Managers with DCommunity Managers. DCommunity Managers is a local community of community managers.

At this Open House, we will have individuals who build and manage some of the most active communities like Made in DC, Public Good App House, and the Global Entrepreneurship Network community. Our guest moderator helped manage communities at 1776 Incubator now at General Assembly.

You should attend this meetup if you’re managing a hobby community, a meetup group, a developer community, or your business card reads community manager, community evangelist, developer advocate, DevRel manager, customer advocate, customer success, social media manager or the ninja equivalent (if you’re working with a startup).

Join us for the DCommunity Managers Open House during DC Startup Week.
