Upcoming 2017 Events
Join 400 of Chicago’s brightest thinkers for the evening – business and civic leaders representing big businesses, emerging start-ups, technologists, investors, and others who form the backbone of Chicago’s innovation community.
The Chicago Innovation Awards and the Executives’ Club of Chicago are co-hosting the 2nd annual Chicago Innovation Summit. Featuring top innovation minds and leaders, this half-day event will showcase new ideas and strategies to help grow your business.
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.
