Alongside the Forbes Under 30 Summit, YEC members and invited guests met on Monday night last week to mingle and chat entrepreneurship and business success. Gathered in the penthouse entertainment space atop 30 Dalton, guests had a 360-degree view of the city and the Fenway area.
Our largest YEC Connections event thus far, over 100 guests came together in the midsts of the Under 30 Summit. Nathan Property Advisors generously provided access to the luxury apartment building, while Cape Ann Brewing Co. provided beer served by the Wanderlush crew. Our partners at Sandler Training offered additional sponsorship for the evening.
Folks in town for the event were able to meet the YEC team in person, chatting with each other and with members of our internal team. We also heard from YEC's founder Scott Gerber, who offered a few words of welcome to attendees. A few of the YEC members in attendance included Jeremy Johnson of Andela, Brittany Hodak and Kim Kaupe of Zinepak, Andrew Antonio of World View, Jake Reisch of Eversound, Enrico Palmerino of Botkeeper, Daisy Jing of Banish, S. Brian Smith of S Brian Smith Group, and Ben Jabbawy of Privy.
While we celebrated everyone's successes, I want give a particular shoutout to a few YEC members who were featured speakers at the Under 30 Summit: Kim Kaupe of Zinepak, Rob Biederman of Catalant, and Brian Wong of Kiip. An additional shoutout to all of our YEC members who were honored as Under 30 members this year as well! (You can find the list, here.)
While drinks -- including speciality cocktails, wine and beer -- were provided by Wanderlush and Cape Ann Brewing Co., the food was from Revolution Catering and included seasonal sliders and spiced kebabs. Pretty Instant provided the photography.
