ACE NextGen continues to grow and expand its reach. Its latest chapter, NextGen DC, was launched on June 15, 2018 by Rebecca Li and John Victoria, who will strive to connect millennial AAPI entrepreneurs across the DC Metro area. This network will have access to mentoring opportunities, educate and promote skills, and provide resources to support AAPIs. Patrice Cleary, the owner of Purple Patch, an American Filipino restaurant in Washington, DC, graciously hosted the launch event at her establishment. Ms. Clearly spoke to the group about the importance of giving back to the community, treating your employees with dignity and respect, and following your dreams. Tim Hwang, the founder and CEO of FiscalNote, also provided remarks. Mr. Hwang is a successful entrepreneur, having started many businesses at a very young age. He told his inspirational story and work experiences leading up to the establishment of FiscalNote. He is a prime example of being a millennial entrepreneur, working hard to achieve success.
