Get WIRED for a Purpose

November 3 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free – $75.00

Join us on November 3 from 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm to help support budding entrepreneurs and spend time connecting with your EFBC community at the Chicago History Museum.

Our Get Wired for a Purpose event will feature a thought-provoking presentation by keynote speaker, Greg Williams the global editorial director of WIRED magazine. A silent auction will be held to benefit the winners of DePaul’s 2023 Purpose Pitch Competition.

Each year, the Coleman Entrepreneurship Center spotlights purpose-driven business ideas that focus on doing good rather than the bottom line. The Purpose Pitch Competition is a unique pitch session where Chicago startups pitch their greater purpose and how they plan to fulfill that purpose through their business objectives.

The funds we raise will help the competition winners get their companies up and running. So, register today to help the next generation of entrepreneurs realize their purpose!
