"Super-Networking" at Verizon Center
Just stumbled across this interesting item in today's Post while waiting for my next flight. All I want to know is where do I sign up?
Angela Drummond wants to take the idea of business-to-business schmoozing at sports events to high art. She is starting Collaborations, an ultra-exclusive corporate club to open at Verizon Center this October, in time for basketball's Washington Wizards and hockey's Washington Capitals to start their seasons.
Take Washington's old-line Metropolitan and Cosmos clubs, add some of the newness of the Tower Club in Tysons Corner and a sports venue atmosphere, and that's what Collaborations aspires to be.
"We're catering to the business elite," said Drummond, 40, who founded SiloSmashers, a government consulting firm in Fairfax.
Why should a business spend $50,000 on a Collaborations membership when the Wizards and Capitals have had marginally respectable records over the past two decades?
Read the whole artcle here.
