Meet the ChicagoNEXT Inclusive Entrepreneurship Leadership Council

The newly formed Leadership Council, made up of civic and business leaders, will work closely with ChicagoNEXT to provide leadership and guidance to the Blackstone Inclusive Entrepreneurship Challenge program and cohort. Members of the ChicagoNEXT Inclusive Entrepreneurship Council will offer strategic direction for the Blackstone Inclusive Entrepreneurship Challenge, mentor and advise the grantees, and use their convening power to support program events. More broadly, members will assist ChicagoNEXT with its vision of inclusive entrepreneurship for our local tech economy. The Blackstone Challenge is the first program of this effort.
