DemBiz events attract a wide range of business executives and professionals from all over Northern Virginia. Among the fields represented are technology, consulting, real estate, engineering, law, non-profit, defense contracting and many more. Elected officials and candidates are also regulars at Signature Breakfast Series events, as are some former administration officials at both the state and national levels.
Our breakfast events typically occur on the second Friday of every month at the Tower Club in Tysons Corner. Doors open at 7:30 am for networking and coffee. Breakfast and speakers start at 8am, with the program and Q&A running until 9:00 am. Unlike local party committees, DemBiz typically does not engage in direct voter outreach. Instead, we aim to create a productive space for members to enhance their business prospects, to meet like-minded professionals and to advance Democrats’ positive messaging on business and the economy.
Recent speakers have included U.S. Senator Tim Kaine, former Governor Terry McAuliffe, then-future Governor Ralph Northam, then-future Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax, Attorney General Mark Herring, Congressman Don Beyer, Congressman Gerry Connolly, EMILY’s List President Stephanie Schriock, all six 2018 candidates for VA’s 10 th Congressional District (including nominee State Senator Jennifer Wexton), George Mason University President Angel Cabrera, INOVA CEO Knox Singleton, and many more.
