EO Chicago cordially invites you to celebrate the city’s best and brightest entrepreneurs! Last year, our inaugural Celebration of Entrepreneurship attracted over 400 professionals and entrepreneurs. Some notable participants included the founder of @properties, Cards Against Humanity and Boka Restaurant Group, along with the heads of 1871 and Sterling Bay. This year, you’ll hear the stories of RXBar, Groupon and Conor McGregor, along with Howard Tullman, Rick Bayless, Troy Henikoff and many more.
Similar to last year, four student entrepreneurs will compete as part of the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (“GSEA“) — think Shark Tank for students — with the winner receiving $10,000 and the opportunity to represent Chicago at the National GSEA ceremony. All proceeds are donated to Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) and Women’s Business Development Center on a 50/50 basis.
Sponsorships sold out last year so be sure to book early! Sponsorship opportunities, GA and VIP tickets are on sale now. Click Tickets to view and register today. Come share some innovative cocktails, bites and business growth experiences with other professionals at Moonlight Studios in the West Loop. November 12th is the date! Many more speakers and judges will be announced soon.
