As the nation continues to understand and recover from this year’s health and financial crises, we invite you to a discussion about finding success in entrepreneurship from the perspective of local founders, incubators, and investors. Over the years, Chicago has emerged as a tech hub that rivals the concentrated markets of our coastal competitors. Forbes reports that Illinois maintains a rate of startup growth at 68.85%, while Chicago holds the top slot for venture capital returns. Moreover, Inc. Magazine reports that Chicago has the highest concentration of women entrepreneurs in the nation. How has Chicago established itself as the Midwestern anchor for entrepreneurs and innovators? How has COVID-19 impacted this sector of business?

Chicago continues to grow its startup community and create innovative founders who lead new companies to sustainable success. The Executives’ Club invites you to join us on July 9th for a conversation on what makes a startup company successful in Chicago and the effect of the global pandemic on local entrepreneurship.

PLEASE NOTE: You will receive a second email on July 8 with the link to access the webinar. Please check your spam or junk folder in case the link is sent there.
