DCSIP in The Washington Post


DC Social Innovation Project was recently profiled in The Washington Post’s Capital Business publication. From the story:

“Woodland’s plight [of not knowing how to turn his passion into a thriving organization] was one that probably sounds common to any entrepreneur who has an idea, but needs help turning it into a smooth-running enterprise. His big break came after he applied to the DC Social Innovation Project, an “accelerator” for promising socially minded start-ups. The project agreed to take on the fledgling nonprofit, giving his Young Doctors DC program a $7,000 grant, free legal counsel and help establishing a social media presence. As a result, six African American ninth grade boys from Southeast neighborhoods are now taking the first steps toward a career in medicine.”
