Description

The University of Chicago Innovation Fund is excited to announce the Spring 2017 investment cycle. Applicants from across the University of Chicago, Argonne National Lab, Fermilab, and the Marine Biology Laboratory will compete for up to $250,000 in proof-of-concept capital. Previous finalists have built exciting technologies across a wide range of industries representative of the core strengths of the University and our partners.

Please join us for the final pitches of these fantastic teams to the Innovation Fund Advisory Committee, an esteemed group of judges made up of investors, serial entrepreneurs and industry experts.

Lunch will be available beginning at 11:30 am. Program begins promptly at 12:00 pm. Networking will begin immediately following the presentations at 2:40 pm.

This event is part of UChicago Innovation Fest, a month-long celebration of entrepreneurship and discovery around the University of Chicago. With more than 40 events scheduled across Chicago and in other key cities around the world, we welcome you to join us as we explore solutions to big problems, brainstorm ways to scale impact, and connect with leaders in business, science, healthcare, tech, and more.

This annual festival is led by UChicago’s top leaders in innovation, including the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, the Institute for Translational Medicine, the Social Enterprise Initiative at Chicago Booth, and the Office of Research, Innovation and National Laboratories. Innovation Fest is sponsored by the University of Chicago Graham School of Continuing Liberal and Professional Studies.
