We’re going to the White House

smorg-flag-logoAhead of Member Meeting 36, a group of SocialMedia.org members are headed to the White House as guests of U.S. Chief Technology Officer Megan Smith.

It's the first ever White House Demo Day, and the event is bringing together entrepreneurs from all walks of life, from all across the country. But unlike a traditional demo day, presenters aren't showing off for funders. Instead, they're sharing individual success stories, highlighting the individual journeys of a diverse set of entrepreneurs—people whose stories show exactly why we need to grow the pie to make sure there's opportunity for everyone in the innovation economy.

We'll be there to get an early look and meet some of the honored entrepreneurs whose work they'll be celebrating. Read more about the project here and here.

You can follow along on Twitter via hashtag #WHDemoDay.

The event will also be livestreamed at www.whitehouse.gov/live.
