EMERGE/NEXT CHICAGO is designed to educate, connect and celebrate emerging young leaders in technology, engineering, entrepreneurship and creative sectors.  

Through our annual experiential educational event, we provide an unparalleled opportunity for young people to see and learn how STEM + ARTS (STEAM) skills are utilized in both technical and non-technical careers from building products that include their favorite cars, shoes and beauty products to leveraging technology in film and television.  Future business leaders can learn the ins and outs of pitching new products and leading companies.

We present an unmatched opportunity for emerging leaders to network with and learn from distinctive professionals, connect with like-minded peers and celebrate the accomplishments of ambitious, young leaders in Chicago.
