Food and Fellowship

Food and Fellowship
September 7, 2010 by Orr Fellowship
Last night, I was lucky enough to go out to dinner with a group of Orr Fellows to a sushi place on Mass Ave. As we sat devouring our sushi rolls and bartering with each other in an attempt to try all the different varieties, I realized that our conversation covered a lot of topics that are central to the Fellowship.

Nick talked about how he had had dinner with someone he had met at an Indy Hub event, an organization dedicated to post-graduate networking and involvement in Indianapolis. Like Indy Hub, the Orr Fellowship offers new graduates a phenomenal chance to interact with top company executives while also building a network of young professionals.

Matt talked about the upcoming Hackers and Founders meeting, a group of entrepreneurial people that meet up every month to discuss Indianapolis start ups and business ideas. Multiple Fellows have attended the meetings and say they’re a great way to feed their entrepreneurial spirit. Matt actually presented a business idea last month and received some great feedback!

Lauren volunteered to organize a casual Fellow get-together for the upcoming Colts game. While all the Fellows may not be huge Colts fans, everyone is so excited to continue developing the inter-Fellow relationships. Especially for those graduates that may have been anxious about moving to a new city and not knowing many people, the Fellows provide a never-ending social calendar and 35 new friends!

Corey and I shared some of the latest happenings at our host company, Compendium. We had a company meeting yesterday and left it with a renewed confidence that we truly are working for one of the best high growth start-ups in Indianapolis. In addition, our departments are collaborating to expand all employees’ understanding of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and web page set up. While our reading assignments kind of feel like school again, we’re very thankful that our host company is so dedicated to helping each of us develop our skill sets. I definitely count these learning sessions as a huge benefit of working in a fast growing Indianapolis company!

If our dinner conversation sounds like something you’d like to be a part of, make sure you check out the Orr Fellowship today!
