It is hard to believe that Tech Cocktail is 5 years old today – and to think it all begin with a simple blog post. We are really excited to be celebrating with all of our friends in Chicago, and can’t wait to see everyone from the awesome local tech community tonight.
We owe many thanks to our Birthday Bash title sponsors Cars.com and Microsoft Bizspark and community sponsor ChicagoMicro, as well as the community support of the Chicagoland Entrepreneurial Center and the State of Illinois’s Startup Illinois & Illinois Innovation Network – two organizations that are focused on innovation and making Illinois a great place for technology and business. Additionally, we’re excited to have Social Media Club Chicago as a community partner.
We have some really awesome startups demoing as we kick off TechWeek, so here’s a sneak peek at who you will meet tonight:
