Caxy CEO Mike LaVista

What are some social events your company does?

We're trying what we can to create opportunities to get to know each other given that we're mostly in Chicago, but with many people around the US. The last 2 events we flew people in for so we could be together were at Ace Bounce for food and ping pong and then an end of year party where we bowled and did awards.
