Polsky Entrepreneurship Showcase: Celebrating 5 Years of the Polsky Exchange
The Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the University of Chicago is hosting a special Entrepreneurship Showcase to celebrate the five-year opening of the Polsky Exchange on 53rd Street in Hyde Park.
In October 2014, the Polsky Center opened a 34,000 square foot coworking space and state-of-the-art digital fabrication lab to serve all students, faculty, staff, and alumni of the University of Chicago, and innovators and entrepreneurs in the surrounding South Side community without a formal affiliation to the University. Located on 53rd Street in Chicago’s vibrant Hyde Park neighborhood, the Polsky Exchange acts as headquarters for thousands of startups. Today, Polsky is Chicago’s leading innovation hub for the entire Midwest region—bringing in entrepreneurs and innovators from across the state who have access to a full suite of resources and activities provided by the Polsky Center.
Join us for a special celebration and Entrepreneurship Showcase featuring several companies that got their successful start with support from the Polsky Center on Wednesday, October 16. Come meet other like-minded entrepreneurs, sign up for a chance to receive 1:1 mentoring from seasoned business experts and investors, and get free headshots taken of your team.
Come give cheers to five years!
