The Future of The Social Capital

This session will discuss the past, present and most importantly the future of the Washington DC technology community. It will be an inspiring talk on how DC will come to not only own the perception that is the home of social innovation (Social Technology, Social Entrepreneurship, Social Change) but will deliver on this promise.
