Making a Career in Innovation: Chicago Innovators Panel Discussion & Business Innovation Awards Scholarship Ceremony

IIT Stuart School of Business and the Chicago Innovation Awards invite members of the IIT community to Making a Career in Innovation: Chicago Innovators Panel Discussion & Business Innovation Awards Ceremony on March 26. Attendees will have the opportunity to not only meet the panelists but network with over 150 Chicago-based innovators, entreprenuers, and business leaders who are also attending this exciting, first-of-its-kind event.

To commemorate the culmination of Stuart’s inaugural Business Innovation Awards Competition and to connect the IIT community and student talent with Chicago’s innovation community, a special panel of Chicago innovators has been assembled from large corporations to start-up entrepreneurs, who will share their stories and reveal how they created a career for themselves in innovation…in Chicago!

Following the panel discussion, the winner(s) of the first annual Business Innovation Awards Competition will be announced. By participating in this competition, students sought to solve an unmet or under-served need in the world. The process of developing the solution provided students with an exceptional educational experience that not only complemented their studies at Stuart, but advanced their understanding of innovation and entrepreneurship. The winning team will receive a $5,000 scholarship and a summer internship with the Chicago Innovation Awards.

Tickets for members of the IIT community are complimentary and generously provided by our sponsors. Drinks and appetizers are included as well. Seating is limited, so please register soon if you would like to attend.
