The Chicago Forum will meet at the East Bank Club in Chicago the day ahead of the BuiltWorlds Americas Summit. During this meetup, attendees will be presented with the recent research report that identifies Chicago based emerging technology startups and mature technology companies within the AEC ecosystem. Additionally, attendees will be presented with trends about the Chicagoland market for startups and what types of project delivery and property technologies are emerging.

Following the presentation there will be a live “tech companies showcase” where Chicago area construction technology startups will pitch their solutions to attendees for the purpose of venture capital exposure, adoption of their solutions, pilot programs and connection with potential mentors.
