Space for Upcoming DEN Events

There is One Thing that we would love help on from the DEN DC community! We need space in which to host DEN events, especially 20-40+ people panel and speaker events. Ideally, the space should be metro-accessible. Events are typically on weeknights from 6/7pm until 8/9 pm - we can work with your schedule. Please reach out to matt.sturm.13@gmail.com if you can host a DEN event at your office or community space. Thank you.
