Governor Pat Quinn is the recipient of this year's Distinguished Innovator Award for his work to advance innovation in our region. Through the Governor's leadership, the State launched the Invest Illinois Venture Fund to stimulate new business growth across Illinois and funded the creation of 1871, Chicago's newest hub of innovation and entrepreneurship. We are honored to have the Governor with us as a speaker at this year's event.

 

Andrew Mason, the Founder and CEO of Groupon, will be the event's keynote speaker.  In 2009, Andrew won a Chicago Innovation Award shortly after launching Groupon. Under his leadership, Groupon has become one of the fastest growing companies in the world.  Today, Groupon features deals on the best stuff to do, see, eat and buy in 48 countries, and continues to launch new products and services.
