The Academy Group

Friday at 4:00 PM

Salon C Room 2

Hosted by The Academy Group

We live in a word where talent is ubiquitous, but opportunity is too scarce and concentrated, leaving out exceptional young people and perpetuating social inequality and limiting the potential of the American economy. Too often, brilliant, creative, and entrepreneurial minds are not provided the access, exposure, or acumen they need to become economic change agents. Join the Academy Group and a panel of distinguished entrepreneurs from Chicago and beyond in a discussion about what it takes to build wealth and transform society. These leaders – who represent fashion to finance – share their stories of getting a seat at the table…and then flipping it.
