YEC Chicago Cocktails + Connections Recap

[sliderpro id="11"]

YEC members, along with curated entrepreneur guests, met and mingled last week in Chicago at Headquarters Beercade (River North), an arcade + bar venue.

Members in attendance included Lane Campbell, co-founder at Synstress SCDT; Josh Golden, founder and CEO at Table XI Partners; Shradha Agarwal, co-founder at ContextMedia; David Gardner, co-founder at ColorJar; Emerson Spartz, founder and CEO at Spartz; JoAnn Leonard, partner and operations director at Juice Interactive; Mike Hostetler, principal consultant and managing director at Epic Creative; Faraz Khan, VP of business development at Go Direct Lead Generation; and many more.

YEC friends joining the party included Brandon Hale of Techweek; Casey Burdsall of Early Growth Financial Services; Colin McGuire of Biz Fit 2015 and Karan Goel of GetSet Learning, to name a few.

The Chicago Cocktails + Connections event featured delicious apps — goat cheese & truffle stuffed cremini mushroom caps; tuna tartare with avocado puree and sweet chili; braised short rib with whipped potato and fried leeks; and chicken wellington with herb aioli — and a premium open bar and signature cocktails. All guests enjoyed unlimited game play in the venue’s private space while connecting with one another to share ideas and solve business challenges.
