    Thank you to our ThinkChicago 2020 Presenting Sponsor tastytrade!

    July 29-31, 2020


    PLEASE NOTE: this is an all-virtual event, there will be no in-person/physical ThinkChicago events in 2020 due to COVID-19.

    Our annual ThinkChicago summer event is back, but virtually! For the past several years, our "ThinkChicago Lollapalooza" event invited students to explore tech career opportunities in Chicago.


    Due to COVID-19, we're proud to announce our all virtual ThinkChicago-at-Home 2020!


    From July 29-31, we'll invite 200 top-tier university students from across the city and country to take an all virtual, behind-the-scenes tour of Chicago’s vibrant technology & innovation ecosystem! Selected ThinkChicago-at-Home 2020 participants will:

    • Engage with local tech executives and entrepreneurs, who will all share why Chicago leads as a global tech and innovation hub.
    • Learn more about tech-career opportunities with leading tech companies and startups. Resumes of all selected ThinkChicago-from-Home participants will be shared with our official company partners for their 2020 recruitment efforts.
    • Connect with student entrepreneurs and innovators from across the country.
    Join us this July 2020 for an exciting virtual event to engage with local tech community leaders, explore local companies who are hiring, and network with fellow participants - all from the comfort of your home.
