Walker Sands and Techweek are teaming up to bring Chicago’s best and brightest tech innovators and entrepreneurs under one roof! If you’re a tech whiz looking to socialize with like-minded techies, join Walker Sands for a complimentary pre-Techweek Chicago LAUNCH social from 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, June 6, at American Junkie, 15 W. Illinois Street.

At the event, Techweek Chicago will publicly announce the 70 companies participating in its LAUNCH event. Walker Sands is also sponsoring LAUNCH, which invites startups to demo their products and services in front of guest judges and Techweek attendees. If you want to be one of the first to know what incredible tech innovations will be featured at LAUNCH, come out and join us.

The social also includes drinks, light appetizers and a chance to win a VIP Techweek Chicago pass – a $2,500 value! A private pre-screening of “The Internship” will occur following the social for Techweek conference badge holders and social guests, so be sure to stick around.

The event is a kickoff to Techweek Chicago, which will be held June 27-29 at the Merchandise Mart, 222 W. Merchandise Mart Plaza, and brings together entrepreneurs, tech visionaries, investors and thought leaders from around the world to promote and enable technology innovation.
