Networking Session Was Fun

On September 28 we held another informal networking session at Lucid Winery (1015 R Street).  Folks had a number of lively discussions around the room…and enjoyed the drinks and pizza.  Topics included:  Welcoming some recent transplants to the area, the addition of a new staff member at Venture Catalyst, a clever new liquid cooling system for hard-working data centers, the possibility of a nuclear renaissance, a new flame-retardant wrap for EV battery packs.

Seeing our colleague and former CleanStart Executive Director, Ingrid Rosten, was especially good.  She has been swamped being CEO of a number of innovative companies along with running nonprofits she started.  We wonder when she sleeps.

Working from home and driving to build that new business is reducing the social contacts we used to have.  Our networking sessions give folks a chance to recharge and get restimulated.  That’s why we call them PowerUp!  We all need a jolt every once in a while.

Don’t miss our next one.  We will be back at Lucid Winery on October XX.  Sign up now before you forget.  It will be good to see you.
