SEED SPOT and Booz Allen Hamilton are doubling down on their mission of supporting Washington, DC’s entrepreneurial ecosystem to spur startup innovation as a force for good. Their strategic partnership provides early-stage impact-driven entrepreneurs with business fundamentals, mentorship, resources, and access to capital to create businesses that positively impact the world.
