Meet our founders

1776 was founded in February 2013 by serial entrepreneurs Donna Harris and Evan Burfield with the vision of building an inclusive incubator for startups disrupting entrenched industries.  Over the course of the next four years, 1776 grew into a global enterprise with two campuses in the Greater Washington, DC area, Brooklyn, and Dubai, with over 800 startups under incubation and over 1000 mentors engaged on its platform UNION.  In 2017, Benjamin’s Desk, a Philadelphia based co-working company, merged with 1776 to create the largest entrepreneurial ecosystem for startups in the Northeast Corridor.  1776’s proprietary software platform, UNION was spun out as a separate company.
