Social media has replaced news. Dating is a “swipe-right” activity on a smart-phone. And the BSU Chicago Networking Forum has been reconstituted to serve networking in the new economy. 

Ace Bounce is a ping-pong bar where Cardinal alumns will serve-up business ideas, volley job connections, and socialize over drinks. The evening will begin with a brief speakers panel with the themes of Entrepreneurship & Networking in Today’s Busy & Noisy World, followed by a ping pong activity and open networking.
