month review july 2017 drive researchSummer 2017 is in full swing! Wondering what we're excited about? In July, the Drive Research team has taken a few road trips, added more credentials, welcomed new clients, completed several projects, and supported local events. Clearly, we’ve been having a great summer (even though the Upstate New York weather has been less than cooperative the past few months).

Now that we're putting the clouds behind us, we’re looking forward to the rest of summer and are geared up to see what’s in store for our team.

Below are a few of our highlights from July.

Foodie and Tech Lovers Galore

On Wednesday, July 19th Emily, Research Analyst, attended Tech Meets Taste at The Tech Garden with CenterState CEO and tons of other tech lovers and foodies! Tech Meets Taste is one of her favorite summer networking events in Syracuse. In her opinion, this event gets a net promoter score (NPS) rating of +100, meaning attendees are very likely to recommend it. With tons of great samples and organizations, what's not to love?
