A night of action
No time for jet lag! Thursday night kept me busy with a full itinerary of events that started with Fashion Week's Richard Tyler Couture show. Lumina Americas hosted an employment party at their offices on Broadway, and KPE celebrated their fifth year anniversary at their space further up on the same avenue. The NYC branch of the Environmental Entrepreneurs, an NRDC (National Resources Defense Council) initiative had a networking party in the lovely home of Jeanne and John Sullivan. Notable successful entrepreneurs with a passion for our environment, including Bob Epstein (founder of Sybase) and Techspace's Chairman Bruce Bockmann, were enjoying the camaraderie of other interested guests. Starvest's Jeanne Sullivan and AT&T's John Sullivan (who's partially heading up the NY branch) made sure all the guests got to know each other. They were the perfect hosts. Later that night, I stopped over to Centrofly, where KPE held their after-party for staff and friends. Martinis flowed and hors d'ouevres kept a'coming; and with pulsating music, the young hipsters of the night were in a sensory sensation. Even the blue-painted face and branded KPE man didn't seem out of place!
