Collab: A Unique International Fellows Network Event in Washington, DC

Feb 25, 2020
Panelists begin the conversation at the recent IFN event, a collaboration with many organizations

On February 5, former and current fellows, artists, start-up experts, and DC entrepreneurs gathered together for an interactive, intentional discussion that bridges the common issues shared by artists and entrepreneurs. ProFellow teamed up with  STABLEUNICEF USA, and Eisenhower Fellowships DC Chapter in to plan the sold-out event!

Members of the panel discussed included STABLE co-founder Caitlin Teal Price, STABLE artist Emily Francisco, DC small business owner Marcus Bullock, and noted venture capitalist Mark Walsh. The discussion was facilitated by STABLE’s Director of Advancement & Operations Kali Wasenko.

The panelists collaborated on-the-spot to solve real problems shared by their professions. Through this unique salon, stakeholders bought their individual experiences to develop possible solutions. Tough questions about the nature of entrepreneurship and career endeavors blended into art and design worlds. The panelists brought poignant answers on navigating this journey.

After the event, a light dinner and an opportunity to meet the panelists and other attendees followed.
