The Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation supports entrepreneurial Chicago Booth alumni through a variety of resources. These offerings are designed to help alumni build their businesses, strengthen their involvement with the school, and expand their networks.

Alumni Entrepreneurs at Work

We are proud of the many entrepreneurial Chicago Booth alumni. They have launched ventures in a diverse range of industries, from technology to beer and from education to real estate, reflecting the strength of the university's entrepreneurial spirit.

Watch a panel featuring Alvin All, '96, co-founder and CEO of iParenting Media, and Gary Conkright, '82, CEO of InformMed, talk about their entrepreneurial journeys.

Stay Connected and Give Back

Alumni can give back to the Polsky Center in many ways - as mentors, conference speakers, classroom guests, program sponsors, competition judges, angel investors, and financial sponsors. We encourage alumni to check events listed on our calendar that may be of interest as well as present possible ways for them to share their experiences.
