Chicago Startups Play WhirlyBall is a fun networking event for Chicagoland tech enthusiasts & startups--founders, early employees, investors and close friends. The goal is simple: Play hard and meet people. No speakers. No business cards. Just WhirlyBall, a bar, and big screen TVs with other talented people you should meet. If you're involved in the startup / tech scene in Chicago, you're invited!
There are a ton of great events for startups out there, but most of them involve sitting in an audience listening to a speaker. Instead of listening to a speaker, you'll be driving a bumper car while trying to get a wiffle ball into a basketball hoop with a lacrosse stick. Awesome!
