Event Details

  **Technori Pitch is changing locations in July and August due to construction at the Chase Auditorium - In July, Pitch will be held at TechNexus**


Technori is teaming up with The Digital Professional Institute for this month's Education-Themed Pitch!

Chicago's monthly tech showcase, where geeks, veeps, and everyone in between meets. 

Technori Pitch is a monthly showcase of Chicago’s most innovative startups, pitching their latest technologies. Each month, 500 impassioned entrepreneurs, developers, designers, tech companies, investors and tech enthusiasts gather to watch Chicago's most innovative startups launch and present their newest products and services.


Technori Pitch is Moving to Monthly Themes 

In 2014, Technori Pitch will be moving to a themed format. Each month, both the keynote and all five start-ups will revolve around a selected theme. 



Long-established methods of teaching and learning haven't significantly changed for hundreds, if not thousands, of years....until now.


'EdTech' is disrupting every facet of our education system. From tablets + apps in the classroom to 'MOOCs,' to the metrics used to measure progress, we're getting smarter about how we approach education, and Chicago startups are leading the way.

July Keynote:

Phyllis Lockett
CEO of LEAP Innovations

Phyllis is CEO of LEAP Innovations, a Chicago-based education technology hub that advances personalized learning to prepare Americans for 21st century skills. The nonprofit organization helps to identify, pilot, research and expand the use of innovative teaching and learning technology tools from pre-K to early college.


Before starting LEAP, Phyllis was a driving force behind Chicago’s charter movement. As founding president and CEO of New Schools for Chicago, she helped raise more than $70 million to support opening 80 new public schools, primarily charters. For nearly a decade, she focused on bringing quality public schools to communities of high need and advocating for school choice.


She previously served as executive director of the Civic Consulting Alliance (CCA), a pro bono consulting firm for government agencies, and held marketing, sales and business development roles with Fortune 500 companies, including IBM, Kraft Foods and General Mills.


Born and raised on Chicago’s south side, Phyllis is a graduate of the Chicago Public School system, and both of her parents were Chicago Public Schools teachers. She earned a Master of Management degree from the J.L. Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Engineering from Purdue University.
