The Entrepreneurs Unpluggd team is excited to introduce Startup Lightning Round, a new monthly event featuring entrepreneurs in the Chicago startup community sharing their learnings and challenges in a TED talk style.
Overs the years, we’ve been proud to provide you with information from successful, experienced entrepreneurs. One of the key pieces of feedback we heard from our community was the interest in learning from entrepreneurs who were on the ground, growing companies in the beginning stages, and sharing their mistakes and learnings with each other.
Startup Lightning Round is the perfect opportunity to do just that. On the registration page is a signup form for those interested in speaking. Talks will be 7 minutes long and will be formatted in a storytelling fashion: with a clear beginning, middle and end. Topics will include current business challenges like naming, team dynamics, marketing, fundraising etc.
Our goal is to provide a monthly forum of inspiration, learning, and a sense of community for Chicago entrepreneurs. Join us on February 28th at Loyola’s downtown campus for the beginning of a fast paced, fun tradition that is sure to light up the Windy city.
