Advanced Degrees Speed Dating & Networking (ages 40s and 50s)

Highly Educated - Speed Dating & Networking Mixer

Estimated age groups

40's and 50's

Attention all Masters or higher degree holders! Come meet other highly educated smarties  at this unique speed dating and networking event. This is a dual age range party, you'll meet singles in your age range, as well as having the chance to mingle with everyone during the networking breaks.

When’s the last time you met 8-16 potential dates face to face in one night? Purchase a ticket for this speed dating and networking event and you’ll be mingling with a ton of attractive, fun and social local singles who want the same things you do!

Speed dating gives you the chance to introduce yourself and find out 6 minutes worth of information on each potential date in the room. Six minutes isn’t long enough to know if he or she is “the one”, but you will know if there is enough spark for a great first date!

We will have conversational friendly music in the backgrounds and a private or semi-private area for us to mingle in. You’ll be emailed a list of you mutual matches within 24 hours of the event.

Remember... chemistry isn't found online.

What to Wear / What to Bring:

This is a casual event, business casual attire is fine. First impressions are important though, so dressing to impress is always the goal!

Bring business cards if you wish to exchange for networking.


Registration and check in begins at 7pm. Speed Dating begins at 7:15pm. Just like a first date, please be on time. Late arrivals (after 7:30) will probably not be seated untill the second round, therefore miss meeting half of the group.

Please be on time. The speed dating portion of event concludes around 9pm and the after-party mingling continues untill the bar closes at 2am.

About our Sponsor Venue:

We will be mingling at Kamehachiin Old Town, on the second floor in a very swanky private lounge. Kamehachi is one of the best sushi bars in Chicago, and the location really can't be beat. The private room we are in has it's own bar and is perfect for quiet conversations. Open until 2am, if you really hit it off with someone you can stay all night!  I truly recommend coming early and dining before our event- as sushi is a natural aphrodisiac! BTW, the food here is delish!
