IIT Stuart School of Business and the Chicago Innovation Awards invite you to join us for Making a Career in Innovation: Chicago Innovators Panel Discussion & Business Innovation Awards Ceremony on March 26th at the IIT Stuart School of Business.  You'll have the opportunity to not only meet those on our panel, but to network with over 150 Chicago-based innovators, entrepreneurs, and business leaders who are also attending this exciting, first-of-its-kind event!

To commemorate the culmination of our inaugural Business Innovation Awards Competition at IIT Stuart and to connect the IIT community and student talent with Chicago's innovation community, we have assembled a special panel of Chicago innovators, from large corporations to start-up entrepreneurs, who will share their stories and reveal how they created a career for themselves in innovation...in Chicago!

Following the panel discussion, we will announce the winner(s) of the first annual Business Innovation Awards Competition. By participating in this competition, students sought to solve an unmet or under-served need in the world. The process of developing the solution provided students with an exceptional educational experience that not only complemented their studies at Stuart, but advanced their understanding of innovation and entrepreneurship. The winning team will receive a $5,000 scholarship and a summer internship with the Chicago Innovation Awards.
