Event Details

Sponsored by Chase


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. 


In May, Technori is teaming up with IBM and its Global Entrepreneurship Program for our Big Data and Cloud Themed Event!

IBM Global Entrepreneur program helps startups turn their vision into reality. Startups need low-cost infrastructure, access to funding, a large, global network, and the right business and technical guidance in order to survive, and that’s exactly what IBM Global Entrepreneur members receive.


This month's Technori Pitch will also classify as one of IBM's largest SmartCamp Event to date!

IBM SmartCamps are exclusive events aimed at identifying early stage entrepreneurs who are developing business ventures that align with IBM’s strategy. SmartCamps enable technical startups to take advantage of mentoring opportunities, learn from thought leaders, and network with other entrepreneurs, investment firms, academic leaders, and industry and technology experts. SmartCamps give selected startups the opportunity to connect with the venture community.

May Keynote: 

May Keynote: Dag Kittlaus
Co-Founder/CEO of Siri

Ask Siri to set a reminder for Technori Pitch, provide an ETA to the Chase Auditorium in current traffic and tell you who founded Siri, and she'll reply: reminder set, longer than you'd hope and Dag Kittlaus.


A Chicago area native, Dag rasied $25 million in venture capital and co-fouded Siri in 2007. Hailed as the first true automated Virtual Personal Assistant for mobile devices, the project was spun out of the Stanford Research Institute and caught the attention of many in the industry, including Steve Jobs.  A personal phone call from Steve and several meetings later, Dag & team accepted Apple's offer and made history with the launch of the iPhone 4S. 


A sci-fi author, meteorology enthusiast, and visionary thinker on everything from technology to health science, hear what life will be like in 25 years when Dag takes the stage on the 27th.
