World Business Chicago and NAVTEQ

World Business Chicago and the Young Professionals of Chicago have put together a breakfast with Judson Green, CEO of NAVTEQ at the end of this month.

For those who don’t know, NAVTEQ is a leading provider of comprehensive digital map information for automotive navigation systems, mobile navigation devices, Internet-based mapping applications, and government and business solutions based right here in Chicago.

Green, who spearheaded the company’s successful IPO in 2004, secondary offering in 2005, and recently-announced $8.1 billion merger with Nokia, has successfully taken NAVTEQ beyond its core navigation business into a broad range of applications in the Internet, wireless and enterprise arena.

During the breakfast Green will discuss his background and career path, why Chicago has been an ideal community for NAVTEQ, and offer advice for aspiring future leaders. This talk will no doubt be a real treat.

The breakfast will also be the launch pad for World Business Chicago’s new digital media project, Cooler by the Lake, which aims at attracting the talent that draws companies like NAVTEQ to Chicago by showcasing why Chicago is a great place to live and work.

World Business Chicago is also giving TECH cocktailers a waiver on the $20 fee. So, when you e-mail or call Lauran Court ((312)553-4659 or to RSVP just mention TECH cocktail and you’re in for free.

Seats are very limited for this event so RSVP as soon as possible (and before the deadline of Feb 20).
