Chicago Entrepreneurship Workshop






The Chicago Entrepreneurial Workshop will expose University of Illinois students to the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the booming city of Chicago! Students will have the opportunity to visit startups, innovative alumni, and leading technology companies. 

The Technology Entrepreneur Center and the Academy for Entrepreneurial Leadership will send a select group of students to Chicago, May 15-16, for a two-day technology entrepreneurship workshop.

The workshop will expose students to the many facets of technology entrepreneurship, innovation, and leadership that continues to build an entrepreneurial community at Illinois.

The trip will feature corporate leaders, venture capitalists, and entrepreneurs in various stages of a startup lifecycle. Students will also have several opportunities to network with prominent entrepreneurial Illinois alumni.
