RE-IMAGINED CITIES | CHICAGO 2.0 takes place quarterly, bringing all communities across Chicago to the table to learn about what’s happening now, and what’s happening next with Chicago’s smart city movement. REIC is an opportunity to meet the leaders of ground-breaking smart city projects that Chicago entrepreneurs are driving forward as the world watches, and to understand from entrepreneurs along with city and state leaders alike what Chicago 2.0 will look like.
