Gehtsoft USA joined hundreds of New Jersey businesses for the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce’s premier business event the Walk to Washington.
In its 78th year, the two-day walk connects the state’s business community with political leaders, for a blockbuster networking event.
“This was my first time attending the walk,” said Emmet Ryder, vice-president of marketing at Gehtsoft USA, headquartered in Paramus. “There’s a lot of chances to meet with business and political leaders to discuss business, build connections, and grow our state’s economy.”
Ryder and other business and state leaders boarded a chartered Amtrak train on Thursday, February 25th, 2016 and traveled to Washington D.C. to make the Garden State a better place to do business.
The vice-president of marketing said he had many conversations with other technology companies. He said he exchanged business cards and connected with more than half-dozen business leaders.
As a representative of one of New Jersey’s outstanding custom software development companies, Ryder said he will sign up for the event next year. He plans to converse with the connections he has formed to discuss the issues impacting New Jersey’s tech sector and hopes to broach intellectual property rights with legislative leaders to protect software companies like Gehtsoft USA from international piracy.
“This is the kind of super-networking that helps businesses grow,” said New Jersey Chamber of Commerce CEO and President Tom Bracken. “That is why we have been doing it for three-quarters of a century. It is New Jersey’s biggest and most prestigious business event of the year.”
The chartered train left for the capital on Thursday. Political and business leaders had the grand reception at the Marriott Wardman Park in the evening and participated in the dinner honoring New Jersey’s Congressional Delegation.
