Global Alumni Forum: Launch your Venture

Hosted By: Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation


The Global Alumni Forum: Launching your Venture is intended for entrepreneurs in the initial phases of launching businesses. The program focuses on some of the key-building blocks of starting a new business - customer discovery and entrepreneurial selling. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with other entrepreneurs working through similar challenges, and learn from the experiences of guest speakers and instructors.

This one-day workshop is meant for UChicago and Chicago Booth alumni that have an entrepreneurial idea or are in the early stages of developing a venture. You do not need to have revenue, customers, or even a solidified business model. The purpose of the workshop is to provide attendees with some of the fundamentals necessary to start a business. Participants will register for the program with a business idea and develop their idea throughout the sessions.
