We're building a national community of dealmakers under Bisnow's Escape brand. Recently, we gathered a group at Kirkland & Ellis's Chicago offices (special thanks to Josh Hanna and his team!) to start building what we call Escape's "Ascent" community of next gen leaders. Snapped: Equity Group Investments' Tim Pettit; JPMorgan's Christopher Kosonen; and Trilogy's Jesse Karasik. Be on the lookout for similar gatherings leading up to our National Ascent Summit. Check out www.escape.bisnow.com to learn more and apply to be considered. Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
