TiE Midwest is calling all “Second Stage” CEO’s: Are you currently running a business that creates $1-20M in revenue annually? Are you looking for peer-to-peer mentoring in a private forum?  You are invited to attend this inaugural TiE Midwest session in partnership with the DePaul Coleman Center on February 23rd from 12 p.m.-4 p.m.   Sponsored by Horwood, Marcus & Berk Chartered, this is a spirited peer conversation in which experienced business owners and CEOs help one of their own get “unstuck”. Guided by an expert facilitator, participants get down to the nitty-gritty of a situation, share stories and experiences with similar scenarios, and challenge each other’s approaches, thinking, and strategies. The end result is a conversation that is practical, humbling, thought-provoking, and intellectually engaging.

This half-day session includes lunch and networking time. Eight to 12 invited business owners will participate in the discussion, facilitated by Raman Chadha, Executive Director and Clinical Professor at DePaul University’s Coleman Entrepreneurship Center. Raman Chadha is the executive director and clinical professor of DePaul University’s Coleman Entrepreneurship Center. Look for his insights on second-stage companies every Friday on Enterprise City, Crain’s blog for Chicago entrepreneurs.
