Happy Hour in Chicago!

Join us for the first ever Chicago Tech Happy Hour at Celtic Crossings.


We'll talk tech, have a couple craft beers and meet other engineers, designers, and entrepreneurs in Chicago.


We'll be there at 6:00pm and stay until around 9:00p, so come when you can even if you're not there right at 6p.

Tuesday 1/28



See you there!




About Chicago Tech Happy Hour:

I grew up in the Midwest, and even worked in Indiana for a year until I moved back to Los Angeles in July of 2011 to try my hand at a mobile finance startup. LA Tech was just beginning to take off (it’s firing on all cylinders now!), however it was difficult to meet the people who were making things happen in LA Tech. So we decided to create LA Tech Happy Hour, a place where engineers, designers, investors, and entrepreneurs could come together and have conversations about tech, statups, and the latest innovations over a beer.


It worked.


A year later the group was over 1,000 members and one of the largest Meetups in Los Angeles Tech. Here are some of the stories we've heard from our group: engineers quitting big companies to join startups they met at the happy hour, freelancers picking up business getting to know people over beer, people taking the leap and becoming founders because they were inspired by the passion and belief of other entrepreneurs they met. It’s been incredible.


I knew we had to bring this way of meeting to other communities, and there's no way we want to miss out on Chicago!

I look forward to meeting you and getting introduced to some of your local brews.



See you at the happy hour!


- Zach

    I have the opportunity to host a Superbowl party at the Celtic Knot in Evanston, walking distance from the Davis "L" stop. If I get at least 15 confirmed, I'll book the room. No cover, just a confirmation that you'll show - I would love to meet some members at it!
