We’re excited to co-sponsor this major entrepreneurial event in partnership with the Illinois Technology Association and TechAmerica, along with many other regional universities, associations, incubators, and other entrepreneurial organizations.

The event takes place during Global Entrepreneurship Week and will also mark the launch of the new book How They Did It: Billion Dollar Insights from the Heart of America. This is a landmark book of thoughts, ideas, and inspiration from 45 of the most successful living company founders ever to come out of the Midwest. Eight of the founders featured in the book will speak on a panel at the event.

We have a limited number of tickets available to MIT Enterprise Forum members for $15 (non-member price from MIT-EF is $35). Register NOW!

And now is an ideal time to become an MIT-EF member if you’re not already.


How does a solo entrepreneur take an idea from scratch and grow to a thousand employees and millions of dollars in profit? What is the secret sauce to these company founders’ success?  Find out at The Great Lakes Entrepreneur Bash where you can meet and learn from eight company founders who will tell you how they built their multi-million dollar companies.
