Spring Sales Bazaar!
Want to get a jump-start on upcoming deals? Meet the major D.C. players at one of our upcoming events!
Thursday, we went to the BUILD Metro DC Spring Sales Bazaar at Pepco Edison Place Gallery. Here, BUILD Metro DC regional executive director Bryce Jacobs and BUILD Metro DC's Isabel Friedenzohn flank NCTA Foundation's David Pierce and Frank Gallagher.
The bazaar gave the BUILD Metro DC high school sophomores the opportunity to pivot their businesses by selling their newly launched products to guests. Here, Cambridge Associates' Alexa Grau with Ironistic's Veronica Dunbar.
Through entrepreneurship-based, experiential learning, BUILD helps ensure that all students, regardless of background, have the opportunity to develop the skills necessary for success. Here are some of the BUILD Metro DC mentors helping students with their entrepreneurial projects: Aspen Institute's Jenny Everett and Enough Project's Amanda Schmitt.
Eastern High School teacher Cassandra Bell is flanked by her students, and BUILD Metro DC participants, Raeja Pearson and Myshae Hargrove.
