What’s Shaking the Region - Makers and Shakers

Share this post

Innovation DuPage joined forces with Brewpoint Coffee and the City of Elmhurst to host DuPage County’s first Makers & Shakers event. Sharp minds from across Chicagoland came together for this electric evening to promote their businesses and make meaningful connections with fellow startups and business moguls. The dynamic event drew a vast array of noteworthy entrepreneurs from all industries and stages of the startup journey. 

It was a night of joy, laughter, dynamic conversations, and exciting new ideas. This was just the beginning. Makers & Shakers is going to continue to build on its initial success, bringing together entrepreneurs from Elmhurst, the DuPage region and beyond.

They all created a storyboard, littered with colorful reminders of what continues to inspire them to keep creating change. “Helping People. Encouraging Passion. Finding the Joy. Failing Forward.”

Perhaps we all need a little courage to fail forward once in a while.

Thank you to Fry the Coop, Propelling Good and Luxe Productions for the sincere discussion about the challenges facing startups.
