TECHNORI IS CHICAGO'S MONTHLY TECH SHOWCASE.
As the 3rd largest monthly startup event in the United States, Technori is a showcase of the Midwest's most innovative startups, debuting their latest technologies.
Each month, 500 impassioned entrepreneurs, developers, designers, investors, and tech enthusiasts gather to watch five companies present for exactly five minutes each, with an interactive Q&A session that involves the entire Technori audience.
The results have been amazing. 55+ showcases and 25,000+ attendees. 265 companies have presented. They now employ over 1,000 people and have raised over $236 million in funding. Many have gone onto Y Combinator, Techstars, and AngelPad. Several have exited and more will in the coming years.
