  • Speed Networking

    Do you feel awkward walking into a networking reception and are unsure how to approach someone?

    Come to Speed Networking on Tuesday, March 31 at 6:30pm where we take the awkwardness out of networking! During this energetic event, alumni rotate through six minute round-robin conversations with attendees. You will meet more people than you would at a traditional networking event and you will have the chance to grow your business and increase your professional network. Join in this fun, interactive way to make professional connections! This event will feature a wine and cheese reception, followed by the speed networking session.

    Please bring your business cards to share with fellow attendees and expand your network and your independent school connections.

    Event will be held at:
    Sidwell Friends School
    Upper School Library
    3825 Wisconsin Ave., NW
    Washington, DC 20016

    RSVP to Laura Miller, Director of Alumni Relations.

  • At CES in Las Vegas, local start-ups try on the market for wearable technology

    Vorbeck Materials, based in Jessup, Md., manufactures and sells components that other businesses can use to produce wearable technology. Vorbeck specializes in graphene, a material that is one atom thick; the company produces graphene-based inserts that can monitor heart rate, temperature and other metrics. The company’s president, John Lettow '91, declined to share the names of Vorbeck’s business customers, but he said the company has been working with wearable technology for two to three years. “We’ve really been working to refine technology for true mass production in the apparel industry,” he said. Instead of a “T-shirt that can monitor all kinds of things but costs $300,” Vorbeck aims to help businesses reduce the price to, say, $30 or $40.
