Hey Chicago, the Mixer parade is coming your way! We'll be kicking off the event with inspiring talks from Cars.com followed by the traditional demo style startup showcase; served over cocktails, of course.

Tech Cocktail Mixer & Startup Showcase - Work might be from 9-5, but business happens between 5-9. Tech Cocktail Mixers are like networking events except fun, like a party, except business-oriented, and like a startup pitch series, except informal and face-paced. The result is a one-of-a-kind experience that makes for the perfect evening for entrepreneurs, investors, tech enthusiasts, and fun seekers alike.
