Event description

Description

As Chicago's largest minority group the Latinx community is vibrant with innovative and aspiring entrepreneurs and technologists with business ideas aimed to solve problems disproportionately facing the U.S. Latinx community.

Are you one of them? Join 100 entrepreneurially-minded Latinxs and allies over 54 hours to develop your business idea with mentorship by some of the most talented technologists, business innovators, and prominent investors in Chicago.

The vision for this event is to inspire potential entrepreneurs in the Latinx community to breathe life into their ideas and learn how to bridge the gap from ideation to business plan. Our main focus is on tech solutions, but we welcome all ideas that will help to create a future fueled by Latinx leadership and experiences. The SW Chicago Latinx event is part of a nationwide initiative with events in Los Angels, Miami, NYC and Miami, all the in the same weekend!

FAQs

Do I have to be Latinx to participate?

No, everyone is welcome! The goal of the event is to increase participation from the Latinx community. As a result some of the ideas created might be focused on servicing that community, but it is not a requirement to participate.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Nope, just your willingness and ability to contribute to your team. These are long working days over the weekend period and your team's sucess depends on your input.
