Strategic Sponsor


As the presenting sponsor of the 2021 GW October Entrepreneurship Week, the Strategic Sponsor is integral to ensuring that the conference reaches as many students and local businesses in the Washington, DC metro area. With the generous support of your organization, the next generation of entrepreneurs will reap the benefits of gathering with likeminded individuals, learning the latest research, and discussing how to optimize their futures. Likewise, small businesses have the opportunity to create a strong network of other local businesses, thereby strengthening the entire DC entrepreneurial ecosystem. Lifting up one community has positive effects that ripple outward toward the greater good. Additionally, the Strategic Sponsor is the leading sponsor of a Hippo award of their choosing, honoring the best and brightest in the area at the Spotlight Gala Dinner on the final night of the conference. Lead the way into the future together with ICSB as the leading sponsor.
