Event Details

Please join the University Technology Park at IIT, Wexford Science + Technology, and the Jules F. Knapp Entrepreneurship Center for our monthly networking event on Thursday, June 24th.

This quarter's event will feature the Idea Shop, a space recently opened by IIT on the lower level of the Technology Business Center. This 13,000 square foot facility will be the home of the Interprofessional Projects Program (IPRO), where students from all disciplines collaborate in teams to solve real-world problems, some of which turn into entrepreneurial ventures through the Knapp Entrepreneurship Center, which helps students take their ideas and products from the classroom to the marketplace. The Idea Shop includes space for scientific computing and visualization, engineering graphics, mobile app development, team-based idea generation and communication, and a state-of-the-art machine shop filled with rapid-prototyping equipment.

Connectiviity brings together the entrepreneurship community both within IIT and the greater Chicagoland area and provides the opportunity to network and share experiences with fellow entrepreneurs. Whether you are currently an entrepreneur or are considering starting a business, this event can help you make the connections you need to get your new venture started or grow your existing business. Come explore what the Knapp Center, University Technology Park, Wexford and IIT have to offer!

Refreshments will be served. There is absolutely no charge to attend this event, but registration is required.
