DC Food Solutions Challenge

  • El Tio Tex-Mex Grill 3345 14th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20010 United States (map)

Pitch Competition @ El Tio

WHEN:  Wednesday, March 15, 2017 at 6:30

Please note that the challenge program starts promptly at 7 PM, but we encourage you to join us before and after the event to mingle with your fellow attendees and partake in happy hour specials until 9 PM.

WHAT: Join DCNI for a design thinking challenge where we will develop creative solutions to meet the growing demand for food while decreasing the carbon footprint of food production. No prior knowledge is necessary as we will give you information about the food supply chain, its carbon footprint, and then break you into teams where you will collaborate on ideas that solve the problem. Finally, each team will pitch their solutions to the group. The winning DCNI solution will be submitted to Net Impact's National Office for the next round of judging and a chance to incubate their ideas at an all-expense-paid global food solutions conference in Madison, Wisconsin this spring!
