The most promising startups. The greatest challenges. 16 leading cities around the world. One Challenge Cup. All coming together with a week long festival in DC in May 2014 to celebrate entrepreneurship, innovation, big ideas, and problems that matter.

In other words, 1776 is going to have a busy year.

Congratulations to TechCocktail, a 1776 partner and member, on raising $2.5 million from Tony Hsieh's Downtown Project. Frank Gruber and Jen Consalvo have been leaders in the DC startups scene for years and continue to support startups across the country. Way to go!

Great news for Zoobean, a curated platform for children's cook and one of our early members at 1776. Jordan and Felix are an awesome team.

America faces major challenges. Innovation driven by startups is central to reinventing many of our tired, industrial era institutions. Entrepreneurs cannot do it alone though. Everyone of us has a role to play--whether as a supporter, a mentor, an investor, a partner, or a policymaker working to foster the right environment for positive disruption.
