Got an idea for a startup business? Need some help getting funding?

WeWork’s Creator Awards will be giving away over $20 million to entrepreneurs, small businesses, growing companies, nonprofits, and artists throughout 2017 — and it all kicks off in DC on March 28.

The event is a great way for startups and growing companies to get their bearings. Beginning at 5 p.m., attendees can check out the DC Job Showcase, where local business owners will be stationed to answer and ask questions.

Or sit in on the Master Classes, where real-world ideas for setting up your business, getting funding, and differentiating your idea will be volleyed around with some of the best in the biz.

If your startup is ready for a funding round, you’ll probably want to see how a pitch should be structured. At 8 p.m., check out a Pitch Lightning Round, where select finalists will pitch to the crowd. Furthermore, the finalists who have been selected to pitch at the event will be broadcast in real time throughout the day on Facebook Live.

Then, award winners will be announced in each of the three categories: The Incubate, The Launch, and The Scale. Winners qualify for the Creator Awards Global Final on November 30 in New York City.

After the winners are announced, the party starts with a DJ, more drinks and more food.

Several more regional events will take place in Austin, Detroit, Berlin, Tel Aviv, and Mexico City before the Global Final at Barclays Center in New York City.

“WeWork began with a group of people that believed community, passion, meaning, and intention could change how we live, work, and connect,” said WeWork co-founder and CEO Adam Neumann, who notes that membership now counts 100,000. “We could not think of a better way to honor our members and all the creators who inspire us every day.”

The event begins at 5 p.m. at the Andrew W Mellon Auditorium, 1301 Constitution Ave. NW. Admission is free, and there will also be a pop-up market with DC merchants selling their wares. For more information and to RSVP, check out the website.

“Dear PoPville,

I fainted yesterday morning while riding the green line towards Gallery Place/Chinatown on the way to a doctor’s appointment. I was standing reading my book when I suddenly got very lightheaded and lost consciousness (possibly from motion sickness?). The next thing I know I woke up on the floor of the train with many people around trying to help me. I was probably only out for a few seconds. One person had already gotten on the call box to tell the train operator. Someone gave me their seat. Someone else picked up my book that had dropped. The whole situation was very disorienting; I’ve never fainted before. (more…)
