Upcoming 2017 Events
Much can be gained from those who have tried, failed, learned from their mistakes and ultimately succeeded in launching ground-breaking new products and services. That is why we bring together our past winners to educate the public about the skills of innovation.
Join us on May 17th as we celebrate successful women innovators and discuss how inclusivity unlocks innovation at our companies and in our city.
We encourage women and men to attend.
Think “Shark Tank” meets a trip to the doctor’s office… A small group of expert innovation “doctors” will be put to the test when they are confronted by entrepreneurs seeking prescriptions for their growth challenges – all before a live audience – and you get to be the “physician’s assistant!” Expected attendance is 200 people.
Join us and hundreds of the region’s innovators who have been nominated for the 2017 Chicago Innovation Awards. This annual celebration brings together those who are pioneering innovation with brand new products, services and processes — meet them all at the Nominee Reception.
Join 1500 people as Chicago’s innovation community comes together to shine a bright light on the creative spirit of Chicago by focusing attention on the most innovative new products and services introduced in the region. The winners each year are innovations that uniquely fill unmet needs, spark a competitive response in the marketplace, exceed market expectations, achieve financial success, and improve people’s lives. They emerge from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. Most importantly, the Chicago Innovation Awards remind us that innovation is thriving in the Chicago region.
