Innovation Fest’s Polsky Innovation Showcase is an interactive celebration of entrepreneurship, innovation, and collaboration in the university community. Set up like a “science fair,” entrepreneurs and innovators from across the campus community will demo their start-ups, products and/or technologies at different tables in the Winter Garden. Attendees are invited to take an interactive and in-depth look at the flourishing entrepreneurial ecosystem at the UChicago. Winners of all tracks of the NVC (Traditional, Social, Global, and College) as well as the winners of the UChicago App Challenge will be announced during this event.
This event is hosted by ITM partners the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation and IT Services.
This event is part of UChicago Innovation Fest, a month-long celebration of entrepreneurship and discovery around the University of Chicago. With more than 40 events scheduled across Chicago and in other key cities around the world, we welcome you to join us as we explore solutions to big problems, brainstorm ways to scale impact, and connect with leaders in business, science, healthcare, tech, and more.
This annual festival is led by UChicago’s top leaders in innovation, including the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, the Institute for Translational Medicine, the Social Enterprise Initiative at Chicago Booth, and the Office of Research, Innovation and National Laboratories. Innovation Fest is sponsored by the University of Chicago Graham School of Continuing Liberal and Professional Studies.
