Tom Kuczmarski and four of this year's Chicago Innovation Awards winners joined almost 100 SIM Chicago Members and Guests to relate their thoughts and stories about innovation in Chicagoland. During the panel discussion, each of the winners shared a bit about their personal journey to success, what they look for in people who join their entrepreneurial team, and Chicagoland as a center of innovation excellence. Debate and discussion were readily found on a variety of topics as the winners arrived at success through a variety of personal and professional paths. A very interesting and engaging evening was had by all.
