ThinkChicago IMPACT is a yearly opportunity for undergraduate students of Chicagoland to compete in a week long immersive competition addressing current challenges our city faces. The challenge will present the intersection of tech innovation and civic involvement, while promoting integration and community within our university ecosystem.
Students will compete in teams of five and experience a week of networking and mentorship from subject matter experts and community leaders culminating in a live, public pitch competition with prizes! Students can register individually or in teams of five people. Students who register as individuals will be assigned to a team to work together on an assigned prompt. All registered teams will be assigned a prompt from on of our three focus areas: Energy, Life Sciences, and Food Innovation.
We would like to give special thanks to our Presenting Sponsor!
