Event Details

Please join the University Technology Park at IIT, Wexford Science + Technology, and the Jules F. Knapp Entrepreneurship Center for our monthly networking event on Thursday, March 18th. The featured guest for this quarter's event will be the FabLab at the Museum of Science and Industry.
FabLab, short for fabrication laboratory, is an open access workshop that houses digital fabrication equipment for rapid prototyping. Housed in the Museum of Science and Industry, the FabLab aims to encourage entrepreneurs to take their ideas from simple ambition to reality by providing the opportunity for creative and innovative minds to:
  • build a prototype of an original concept,
  • test, improve and optimize a completed model, or
  • personalize or design custom products.

Until more recently, access to the FabLab has been restricted, but a team of IIT students has been working to make it fully accessible to entrepreneurs. They will be on hand to discuss the FabLab's capabilities and resources it can provide for entrepreneurs.

Connectiviity brings together the entrepreneurship community both within IIT and the greater Chicagoland area and provides the opportunity to network and share experiences with fellow entrepreneurs. Whether you are currently an entrepreneur or are considering starting a business, this event can help you make the connections you need to get your new venture started or grow your existing business. Come explore what the Knapp Center, University Technology Park, Wexford and IIT have to offer!
Refreshments will be served. There is absolutely no charge to attend this event, but registration is required. Please click here to RSVP.
