ThinkChicago invites 200 university students to tour Chicago's fast growing tech scene and attend Lollapalooza and Chicago Ideas Week Programming.

ThinkChicago

Chicago is a place where young entrepreneurs grow big ideas, transform industries and shape technology and business as we know it. Attendees of ThinkChicago will have the opportunity to attend company career fairs, meet Chicago-based businesses, and participate in panels featuring Mayor Emanuel, industry leaders, and Chicago-based technologists. 

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.
