Second Annual Day of Planned for May

28 Feb Second Annual Day of Planned for May

Mark your calendars! Following last year’s success, the second annual Day of (D.O.F.) will return to Artisphere in Arlington, Virginia on Saturday, May 4th, 2013.

The event will draw more than 500 members of the region’s entrepreneurship community, and D.O.F. will offer multiple panels and experience chats, two expos, a job fair, community driven workshops, a Media Match (where entrepreneurs pitch stories to journalists in a speed dating format), and much more.

SpeakerBox is excited to be involved in the Media Match event again this year. Media Match provides many of the region’s best startups and entrepreneurs an opportunity to speak with journalists who might be interested in their story.  It works like speed dating is a great opportunity for emerging coming companies to practice their media story. The journalists benefit from a “first look” into up-and-coming companies in the region.
Register today at and you can stay connected with event plans via’s Facebook Group and Twitter.  Also, make sure to set up your profile if you have not already registered to connect with this extensive and information-packed network.

If you are a member of the media and interested in participating in Media Match, please e-mail
