Taste of Entrepreneurship Gala

| April 24, 2015 | Parties

BUILD Metro DC hosted its first annual Taste of Entrepreneurship gala which honored internationally renowned Chef and Owner of ThinkFoodGroup, José Andrés who received BUILD’s Innovation in Entrepreneurship Award. With 300 local professionals in attendance, José Andrés challenged guests to combat the sobering statistic that 1 in 5 students will drop out of high school.

Through individual investments totaling more than $50,000 bringing the total amount raised from the gala to $120,000, community members committed to helping grow BUILD Metro DC’s impact to serving 2,000 students in 10 years, which furthers BUILD’s mission of using entrepreneurial experiences to engage students and guide them not only through high school graduation, but to post-secondary success.
