TechTrek Brings SU Students to Chicago

Immersion Explores Area's Entrepreneurial Culture

Downtown Chicago

It may be spring, but Chicago will be Orange in May! That’s because Syracuse University students will be in town during TechTrek Chicago, May 14-18. A new immersion program of the iSchool, TechTrek is bringing students from across academic disciplines to explore the Midwest business world. Its goal is to introduce students to the region’s rapidly growing entrepreneurship scene with visits to startups, along with more established companies.

Students will have the opportunity to network with SU alumni and visit a variety of companies, such as GrubHub, Groupon, Walgreens, and Boeing. They’ll meet company leaders and employees, and learn what it takes to start a company—and keep it growing.

TrekTech Chicago is a three-credit program open to students of all majors and degree programs, and is one of the iSchool’s many immersion experiences. Others include Spring Break in Silicon Valley, Entretech NYC, and Peak2Peak.
