EAST HARTFORD, Conn., March, 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The 560 alumni of the Hartford Business Journal's prestigious 40 Under Forty Award have a new place to congregate online, thanks to a sleek new website constructed by ForeSite Technologies, Inc.
"The purpose of this site is to provide a platform for alumni to connect," said Mike Giuffrida, president of ForeSite. "At the fast pace that the modern business world operates, young entrepreneurs don't always have the option of reconnecting in person. This site will allow honorees to stay in touch and network with alumni of other classes."
Each alumnus is featured in their own profile on http://www.hartfordbusiness.com/40Alumni. Members can update their profile, explore the database of winners, view "yearbook" photos of past events, promote real world meet-ups and events, and get in touch with fellow honorees. Forums enable alumni to participate in a continual exchange of ideas and conversation. And, because it is an exclusive network, alumni can engage in a more insulated environment without the noise that exists on the mainstream social networks.
Each year since 1997, the Hartford Business Journal has awarded forty accomplished business and community leaders, all under the age of forty. "We are thrilled to provide our 40 Under Forty honorees a way to stay in touch and collaborate to achieve continued success," said Gail Lebert, publisher of the Hartford Business Journal. "It will be exciting to see this online community of local business leaders thrive."
