Connecting Founders to Accelerate Growth

Founders, CEOs and key executives of emerging growth companies face many issues and challenges that can best be understood only by peers, versus employees, investors or even co-founders. Chicago Founders Circle's unique environment provides participants with an easy and enjoyable way to learn from peers and experts who have been there before.  

Chicago Founders Circle is an exclusive, invitation-only program that provides participants with an opportunity to meet with peers, as well as members of the Chicago Founders Circle Organizing Board and speakers/session leaders, in an intimate setting. Each month, participants discuss current issues facing their companies, exchange ideas and meet other successful entrepreneurs who can help guide them through the process of building great companies.

Nominations for the 2017 cohort of Chicago Founders Circle will be accepted in Winter 2016.
