Event description

Description

Chicago, with its food legacy, pillar CPG corporations, and emerging tech ecosystem, is home to hundreds of startups and entrepreneurs that are navigating the space. It's impossible to do the city's food innovation ecosystem justice with just one meetup.

That's why we're bringing back Food Inno on Tuesday, February 21st, complete with a WHOLE NEW batch of programming and conversations. The presenting companies and speakers will be different, but the general theme will be similar - an exploration of the local people and companies innovating within and around food.

Space is limited for this event and it always sells out! Be sure to grab your tickets early.

Meetup Schedule:

5.30 - 5.35: Check-in and Registration
5.35 - 6.00: Networking
6.00 - 6:50: Fireside Chat with Tock
6.50 - 7.30: Food VC Panel
7.30 - 8.30: Networking


Fireside Chat: Tock CTO and Co-Founder Brian Fitzpatrick:Brian Fitzpatrick is Founder and CTO of Tock, a company that is working to fundamentally change the way restaurants create and manage bookings.
Food VC Panel: Kurt Estes, Director of the Investment Banking unit with Sikich Accounting, Lee Strom, Chairman of FARM Illinois, Tony Caccomo with Foodworks Venture Funds, and more to be announced.
