Experience the Best in Entrepreneurship, Tech, Medicine, and More at UChicago Innovation Fest

Tech company founders, doctors customizing health care to fit your DNA, scientists transforming cities, and many more University of Chicago pioneers will gather this May for three weeks of dynamic events as part of the first UChicago Innovation Fest.

And you’re invited.

UChicago Innovation Fest kicks off May 12 and runs through June 2, with more than 35 sessions scheduled across the Windy City and UChicago’s downtown and Hyde Park campuses. Join us to share big ideas, rub shoulders with leaders in business, healthcare, tech, and social policy, and find new collaborators.

What started two years ago as a single week highlighting the Shark Tank-style Edward L. Kaplan, ’71, New Venture Challenge (NVC) at the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation has now expanded into a city-wide celebration of cutting-edge projects to solve the major problems facing Chicago and global communities.

This annual festival is led by UChicago’s innovation leaders, including the Polsky Center, the Chicago Innovation Exchange, UChicagoTech, the Institute for Translational Medicine (ITM), and Arete.
