Chicago Forum Meetup


7.12.2022 10:00AM - 11:30AM


BuiltWorlds Office 515 N. State Street, 2nd Floor Chicago, IL 60654

Ahead of this year’s Construction Tech Conference taking place July 13th and 14th in Chicago, the Chicago Forum will meet at the BuiltWorlds office in the River North neighborhood. Forum members and the steering committee will meet to discuss the overall vision of the forum and map out remaining initiatives for 2022 – including partnership opportunities with P33.

Evan Shy and Lucy Brennan will share details regarding various P33 initiatives including its TechRise startup challenge. Additionally, Dave Hettinger, Founder and Principal of Entropy, will share an in-progress update on Chicago-based startups and investors active in the built environment.


About the Forum

The Chicago Forum is a consortium of investors, technologists, and buildings and infrastructure industry leaders focused on bolstering the built-world ecosystem within the Chicago region. Focused on building Chicago’s stature as a top tier city for PropTech and BuiltTech, the Chicago Forum is aligned with other local initiatives such as P33 Chicago, which was founded by Penny Pritzker, Chris Gladwin, and Kelly Welsh, to build Chicago’s reputation as a tier-one tech hub.

The Forum is open to BuiltWorlds’ members as well as investors, tech adopters and tech solution providers that are participating in the 2022 Chicago conferences and summit. Those interested in joining the Chicago Forum should contact staff@builtworlds.com for more details.
