Entrepreneur’s Eve started three years ago when a small group of entrepreneurs were brainstorming how they should spend New Year’s Eve. They wanted to celebrate the success of the previous year with all those individuals in their life that relentlessly supported them.
It was determined only an epic event like no other would do and thus EE was born. Colleagues started talking and the word was out leading to hundreds of entrepreneurs volunteering to become part of this one-of-a-kind celebration. As the event took on a life of its own it became clear that the growing energy should be directed towards benefiting a larger cause. Thus the partnership with the Future Founders and the Chicagoland Entrepreneurial Center was struck to truly give back to the Chicago community.
EE continues as an annual event gathering Chicago’s leading entrepreneurs and civic leaders to lift a glass to the American Dream in all of us.
