Advantage85 is powered by Next Jump:
Founded by Charlie Kim in his dorm room at Tufts, Next Jump is playing a major role in the growing tech scene in Silicon Alley. Recently, when Mayor Bloomberg convened an advisory committee of university presidents, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and other experts to evaluate proposals to build an applied science and technology campus in NYC, he asked Charlie to join the committee. (Charlie would love to hire talented female engineers in our network!)
* Cool stats: Next Jump powers the employee discount and rewards programs for 90,000 companies, including 60% of the Fortune 500. Enrollment in Next Jump programs typically results in an annual average savings per person of $1,407.
While this program primarily benefits our members in the United States, products and services may be purchased by our international members if the company ships globally. Advantage85 will be a terrific perk for members (and their families) who are traveling to the US on business or on holiday.

About 85 Broads
85 Broads is a global women's network whose mission is to generate exceptional professional and social value for its members. Through our regional network events and online at 85Broads.com, members invest their time, their intellect, and their financial capital in each other's ideas and businesses.
85 Broads was founded in 1997 as a network for current and former Goldman Sachs women who worked at 85 Broad Street, the firm's NYC headquarters, and at other GS offices worldwide. In 2000, at the urging of women at Harvard Business School, we expanded the network to include women who were students and alumnae of the world's leading graduate business schools, irrespective of chosen career path.
In 2004, we recognized the importance of further expanding the network to include women at the undergraduate level who were pursuing every career path imaginable. Over the next 3 years, we created campus clubs at 40 colleges in the US and abroad.
And in 2007, we extended membership in 85 Broads to all amazing, trailblazing women worldwide without regard to one's college or graduate school affiliation.
The women in 85 Broads are entrepreneurs, investment bankers, consultants, filmmakers, lawyers, educators, athletes, venture capitalists, portfolio managers, political leaders, philanthropists, doctors, engineers, artists, scientists, in addition to women who are seeking to blaze new trails.
