We Met Leaders of Two Fast-Growing Companies in NYC
PowerToFly was excited to host an evening of "cocktails and conversations" on July 17th that highlighted two fast-growing, New York-based companies.
Hosted at the gorgeous AWS Loft, located at 350 W. Broadway in the heart of NYC, and moderated PowerToFly'sLauren Hagerty, by our guests braved sweltering city heat for a night of networking with the teams from 2U, who are changing the way we approach education, and Plectica, creators of cutting edge visual mapping software.
As our guests arrived, they had plenty of time to snack on scrumptious bites and enjoy a glass of cooling white wine while networking with their skilled peers. Once we wrapped up our first round of networking, both 2U and Plectica provided overviews of their platforms, company culture and open roles. The night ended with plenty of more time to network (while waiting out a heavy duty thunderstorm).

As a Senior Science Writer for a Harvard chemistry research group, a big part of my day job consists of reading primary articles, discussing research projects with group members, and writing and editing manuscript drafts. In other words: I get to nerd out on science and then help students write about that science clearly.
