On December 5th, 352 ushered out 2019 with a special Off the Record event, featuring a look forward into 2020, followed by cocktails, conversation and a rousing game of Innovation Bingo. We were pleased to kick off the evening with Alex Gonzalez, Chief Innovation Officer at the Metro Atlanta Chamber, who held a conversation with 352’s SVP of Strategy, Kacie Lett about the future of innovation in Atlanta.
Pivotal to Alex and Kacie’s conversation was Atlanta’s unique position as the center of collisions between corporations, capital investment, education, entrepreneurs, creatives and next-gen talent. We are the home of a rich and productive mix of interrelated, competing and collaborating firms, creating incredible opportunities for diversity of thought that is so critical for innovation and growth. Read more from Alex in his recent Atlanta Journal Constitution op-ed. We at 352 are excited to see what 2020 brings to our home town!
Following Alex’s discussion, 352 hosted our annual holiday party, themed “Farewell to 2019” this year. Guests enjoyed signature seasonal cocktails and cultivated conversations and collisions of their own through Innovation bingo. Congratulations to Even Skjervold, our bingo winner!
Join us at our next Off the Record event on January 9th at General Assembly, when we’ll be hosting Jeff Perkins, CMO of ParkMobile. You won’t want to miss it!
