This past Monday, DJ Neekola attended the SXSW V2V DC Community Meet Up at the UberOffices in DuPont. This event brings together investors, venture capitalists, techies, entrepreneurs, and everyone who makes SXSW so awesome, all in the same room to meet, greet, and network before the big conference happening in Las Vegas this July. SXSW uses this meet up opportunity to find out what makes all these DC startups tick!

The UberOffices 7th floor was an excellent host for the evening, with drinks and delicious snacks from Ridgewells Catering, keeping all the DC invitees very happy! DJ Neekola represented Pelonkey and met a few other awesome people who were also invited to come present in next month’s conference, as well as some potential investors! Definitely a great meet up!
