Why Rising Ivy?: networking is not about exchanging cards across a buffet table. Rather it's building a group of trusted contacts who will provide resources and connections. Contacts who will advocate for you while you do the same. This is a simple but powerful format enabling our community to build a platform for professional and economic growth.

Format: each event is limited to 30 attendees. Behind the scenes, we curate attendance to ensure diversity and the ideal contacts you indicate below. Our hosts will help facilitate introductions -- as should you! This event is intended for savvy networkers and we encourage each attendee to faciliate introductions both during and beyond the event. Each attendee will get 15 seconds to:

  • introduce yourself
  • share your school, company and title
  • provide our signature "offer and ask" (see description below)

Google, Inc.'s Lauren Schwartz (Columbia '09) - Our Corporate Partner

Meet Google recruiters, learn about Google from the Black Googlers network and get private tours of Google's NY office! All are encouraged to attend while Google is especially excited to meet candidates currently in: management consulting, sales, or technical sales. Feel free to bring a hard copy of your resume to share with the Google recruiters. This event is open to entrepreneurs, potential candidates and all professionals.
