I would like to announce that Chicago Booth Alumni Club summer holidays break came to an end :-). Because of Euro 2012 experience in Poland, this year break was even one month longer - so I hope that all of us are really eager to reconnect with Chicago Booth friends and fellows.

As most of us are already back in the city, it is time to come back to our Polish Booth Alumni Club, regular monthly meetings.

On behalf of the whole Board I would like to invite you to our next session which will take place on 13th of September at 7:00pm in Colombia Coffee Lunch & Cocktail

This time our presenters will be: Aymeric Billet and Andrzej Puncewicz (both from EXP-17) who will present Drink Different business venture, winner of 2012 GNVC competition of Chicago Booth. Drink Different project assumes launch of low-alcoholic cider to the Polish market and is currently at the fund rising stage with the intention to bring the product to the market in the coming months. Aymeric and Andrzej will talk about trends on Polish alcoholic market and their practical experience with "go-live" stage of the project.

We got a promise that tasting of various cider samples will be part of the presentation

As, alcoholic drink samples are going to be served during the presentation, it is highly advisable to come by taxi rather than by car ...

I will be grateful for your possibly quick confirmation of the participation in the event.
