Chicago is a hub of tech innovation, a booming center for cutting edge companies like Groupon, GrubHub, Threadless and 37Signals – where young entrepreneurs grow big ideas, transform industries and shape technology and business as we know it.
Join us in Chicago from October 17-19, 2013 for a chance to visit and meet with the leaders of some of today's most innovative tech companies. 150 elite students will meet industry leaders, visit business headquarters, gain free VIP admission to select programming at the annual Chicago Ideas Week, and much more.
Past participants were exposed to companies like GrubHub, Belly, kCura, 37Signals and Vibes, and speakers like Eric Lunt (BrightTag CTO), Dag Kittlaus (creator of Siri) and Harper Reed (Obama for America 2012 CTO). Attendees also visited the 1871 incubator space, met Mayor Emanuel and toured the Chicago sites.
