One of these two will become the next Mayor of Chicago, and just a few days before the election, they have both agreed to sit down for a one-on-one conversation with Chicago's tech and entrepreneur community. Join host Terry Howerton at TechNexus on March 25th from 3:00 to 5:30 for a personal and direct conversation with Toni Preckwinkle and Lori Lightfoot.

The fast growing tech sector is important to the city's future, and should be a strong partner toward a shared prosperity for all of Chicago.

 

To build and grow new companies and new jobs in Chicago, the entrepreneurs and leaders of our community depend on a robust and inclusive economy, safe neighborhoods and quality education that prepares students for the jobs of the future. We also recognize an opportunity and obligation for the tech community to get involved and help Chicago meet these challenges.

Space is limited, please RSVP as soon as possible to guarantee your seat.

  • Hear from the candidates, pose questions and share priorities directly and openly.
  • Discuss plans to maintain the growing tech influence of Chicago.
  • Address questions geared toward the changing landscape of technology and our lives, and the impact this has on the future of work.


This is a chance for you to get informed and be a part of this impactful election. Both candidates will be hosted during this discussion, and this not an endorsement of either candidate.

Lori Lightfoot will join us at 3:30, and Toni Preckwinkle will join us at 4:30. Please RSVP and plan to stay for both conversations. Refreshments will be served.
