fnChicago CoWorking Day + Lunch

October 23 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm CDT

1cf0b90612935afa30620e8c51aee21c

Get to know the Chicago chapter of Founders Network with a full day of founder coworking at Workbox! Take a break from the grind with a working lunch focused on overcoming objectives and building your local network of tech founders.

Founders are encouraged to come ready to share one startup challenge with the group. The first question an attendee should ask is “how can I help?”

Who Should Attend

Founders Network creates intimate, founder-only events regularly in Chicago. This event is designed to bring tech founders together to discuss the challenges they face with product-market fit, fundraising, recruiting, and scale. We value authenticity, humility, reciprocity and inclusivity and strive to reflect these values in both our events and the guests selected to attend.

Why You Should RSVP

Founding a company is a grind and can often feel like a lonely journey. We want to fix that. If you’re looking to build a network of founders to support and guide you on your journey to success, sign up for the event and experience the benefits of Founders Network.
