Startup Evanston is a venue for building connections between individuals interested in building, developing, and funding high-growth companies in the Evanston area.   We seek to foster and further the entrepreneurial and innovative spirit in this city which Business Week named "one of the top-50 best small cities in the U.S. for start-up businesses."

Meetings of the group will provide an opportunity for entrepreneurs, technologists, developers, and investors to develop relationships and explore new ideas.  In the spirit of exploration and fun, each meeting will feature food or drink from a local business.

Every quarter, we produce a Pitch Day event where 4 teams pitch their projects to a panel of judges and a room of fellow startpers and investors. 

We meet at coLab Evanston (900 Chicago Ave, Suite 104, Evanston, IL 60202)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
