MCC Week in Review 10/21/11

Sometimes I think people don't realize how many opportunities that are available to them by being a member of MCC. Here is a recounting of some of the meetings and events that MCC sponsored and co-sponsored this week.

10/17 MCC participated in the Women's Economic Empowerment Conference hosted by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand at NYU. This event brought together women from business, media and education to discuss how women are gaining prominence in the workforce and how they can grow their businesses and create economic opportunities.

10/18 MCC sponsored an amazing event with Time Warner Cable, Bloomberg TV and New York Institute of Technology. It was called Social Media Victories and speaker Patrick Schwerdtfeger shared "how they did it" success stories of small companies who used social media to not just grow their businesses but transform their businesses. Here's what one attendee said about the event:

Hi Nancy,

I attended your event on Tuesday with Peter Schwerdtfeger and found it to be one of the most informative presentations I have ever been to. Peter presented lots of ideas that I plan to use in my business.

I heard that one member used one of the tips she learned at the event and already had two new clients within 24 hours of the event!

Within hours of this event we joined Bloomberg TV again for their Bloomberg Empowered Entrepreneur Event at Cedar Lake in Chelsea. MCC was pleased to co-sponsor this event which brought together entrepreneurs, investors and discussed trends in the tech and social media industry in NYC (and offer MCC members a discount).

10/19 MCC invited new members to its quarterly new member breakfast hosted by MCC partner Eisner Amper. New members were welcomed by Laura Bucko, VP/Director of Communications of MCC and Gil Effron, MCC Board Member.

MCC members also had a forum with Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney who awarded MCC with a grant to help teach businesses about how to export.

10/20 MCC worked to promote international business today by co-sponsoring two events: "Opportunities in Japan’s Mobile Internet Market" with JETRO and the "U.S-China Cross-Border M&A Forum."

10/21 MCC's health care committee met and heard an overview of the economic issues in the US healthcare industry from MCC member Rick Reiman of Group Health Solutions. MCC members in the health care industry are convening in these monthly meetings to find solutions for small businesses, discuss best practices and identify economic opportunities in the health care industry.

And that's just one week in the life of MCC! Have a great weekend all and hope you join us next week.
