The Georgetown Venture Lab
The Georgetown Entrepreneurship Initiative at the McDonough School of Business has launched the Georgetown Venture Lab, a modern co-working space that provides the university and its network of alumni entrepreneurs with a valuable physical footprint in the heart of the nation’s capital.
Located at WeWork Metropolitan Square, one block east of the White House on 15th and G Streets, NW, this collaborative setting enables Georgetown’s growing network of alumni entrepreneurs to build a vibrant hub that serves as a magnet for the Washington, D.C., startup community and a catalyst for entrepreneurial activity.
Georgetown alumni entrepreneurs from all industries are invited to apply for membership at the Georgetown Venture Lab, where the university has a dedicated pool of approximately 90 available desks at a subsidized monthly rate. In addition to providing alumni entrepreneurs with a physical workspace, the Georgetown Venture Lab coordinates programming to foster the growth of new ventures and connects Georgetown University entrepreneurs to the greater alumni community and current students.
