Location

We’ve chosen the fabulous city of Chicago as the backdrop for our inaugural conference. Geographical location aside, we wanted somewhere…

  • Where start-ups have been successful, even when bootstrapped;
  • Where companies we admire have grown up;
  • That is full of hardworking people who still take time in their day to be kind.

Chicago ticks all the boxes.
