"When I first met Dawn, I knew she would be the perfect fit to lead our startup community launch in DC. She led by example being a startup founder herself, and she brought all her skills, network, and passion to the table. She was pivotal in the success of launching our startup community program in DC. She is a great listener, team player, knowledgeable, articulate, charismatic, an enigmatic speaker, manager/leader, super connector, evangelist, and supporter of startups and is not only focused on the community as a whole, but also in helping individual founders succeed."
