The Chicago Booth DC Entrepreneur's Advisory Group will meet on June from 7-9 pm at the offices of Wilson Sonsini at 1700 K Street.

This month we host two entrepreneurial businesses. Our lead off speaker will be Lisa Nisenson of Lisa and her partner founded Greater Places after being inspired by and observing all of the development and debate occurring in their community. They happen to be my neighbors as well.

The main event will feature Luis Derechin of From the website:

PointWorthy was born from simple frustration: We’re successful technology entrepreneurs who had accumulated a lot of loyalty points and wanted to use the loyalty points we had stored to help fund different causes we believed in, but we couldn’t! Turns out there are $50 Billion worth of loyalty points distributed every year. Yet, even though close to 30% go unredeemed, there was no easy way to convert them to cash for any of the charities that we wanted to contribute to. Combining our social entrepreneurial zeal and the fact that consumers like to partner with socially responsible companies, we saw an opportunity to create a great business and to make the world better at the same time!

Please join us for a lively discussion about these two companies.

Our hosts at Wilson Sonsini will provide pizza and soft drinks to sustain us through the evening. I hope to see you there!
