Net Impact, you ask? This is a great organization that sweetriot has been supporting since our founding. It brings together young people who believe in socially conscious business. Their annual conference was just held at Northwestern University, and we were there speaking at a session on 'mission-based food and beverage businesses."
Kristin from Revolution Foods and Annie from My Family Farm and were also there and have great stories to tell about their businesses. John the founder of Room to Read spoke about his amazing literacy non profit, and Graham from Net Impact Boston was there with his reused sweetriot tin and his iPod earphones. Nice.
To top off of the evening, it was Saturday Night - Halloween eve in Chicago, and the ghosts were out! The infamous Ted Ko was seen dancing into the wee hours. Have you heard of Net Impact and/or attended? Let us know...
PS - My alma mater, UMichigan, was awarded University Chapter of the Year! Go Blue!
