*Chicago Courageous Minds Only + 1871 with Leaders from Mars Wrigley, Exelon, Relish Works, and Alight Solutions

January 28th, 2019

The Garage Group is excited to organize and host our first Chicago Courageous Minds Only chat on Operating Like a Startup in a BigCo of 2019, on Wednesday, February 27, at 6 pm in partnership with 1871 at 1871, 222 W Merchandise Mart Plaza #1212, Chicago, IL 60654.

Please Note: This event was originally scheduled for January 31st, but has been rescheduled for Wednesday, February 27, due to weather constraints.

Last year, we hosted conversations with more than 30 courageous BigCo leaders across the country, hearing from them as they try to adopt more entrepreneurial ways of working and influence their organizations to move faster and smarter. These battle-tested leaders are courageously trailblazing the way forward. They’re under tremendous pressure to keep organizations like Kraft Heinz, ascena retail, PepsiCo, Citi, and more relevant and growing in the face of increasing market uncertainty.

As the Courageous Minds Only community grows, we’re excited to partner with 1871, Chicago’s center for technology and entrepreneurship. 1871 is a community of startups, corporations, and community partners who learn from each other and innovate together. They offer workspaces and more to both startups building their products or looking for their next round of funding, as well as BigCos who are looking to create a more internal culture of innovation. World-class incubators and startup accelerators like Techstars Chicago and Bunker Labs operate out of the space.

Register to join us on February 27. Here’s who’s jumping in:
