WHAT IS RAISE THE RIM? A three on three, charity basketball tournament. Started in 2012 in Boston, Raise the Rim unites the local startup community around healthy competition. It gives startup founders, employees, and advocates the opportunity to celebrate their shared interests of building innovative businesses while raising money for a good cause. Food, drinks, music, activities and a raffle keep the energy high throughout the evening!
ABOUT THE CHARITY This year, all registration proceeds will go to the Future Founders Foundation, a foundation that inspires low-income youth in Chicago to explore new career opportunities. They offer programs to connect students with mentors from various professions and provide engaging project-based learning experiences for 3rd through 12th graders.
REGISTER A TEAM Teams will be 3-6 people. If a company has fewer than 3 players, they will be

REGISTER AS A COMMUNITY MEMBER Entrepreneurs, VCs, Startup Institute instructors, students, and advocates are all welcome! Let’s celebrate the connectedness of Chicago’s startup ecosystem, for which we each play a vital role.
