Important update with the Chicago Venture Summit (September 2021)

As organizers of the Chicago Venture Summit, we’ve reviewed recently-issued guidelines issued by federal, state, and local public health authorities. In alignment with these various guidelines, we are now announcing that all physical meeting events associated with the Chicago Venture Summit will now take place in September 2021.

We’re especially thankful to our lead partners Google, J.P. Morgan, and William Blair for their continued support during this time; and our many local partners who’ve supported our recent Summit efforts. For those who’ve already purchased your tickets, separate email communication will be sent via Eventbrite. 

While the physical events are delayed, ChicagoNEXT remains committed – now, more than ever – to supporting our startup and venture capital community. That’s why later this Fall 2020, we’re excited to launch our inaugural startup portfolio program to connect our tech entrepreneurs with active investors across the country through a series of virtual programs, resources, and resources. Although more updates will be shared soon, if you have any additional questions please contact ChicagoNEXT Director Abin Kuriakose ( 

Thank you. Please keep well, healthy, and stay safe.
