“The Chamber really highlighted the social enterprise movement in Chicagoland and the Midwest with three great, different examples of how this plays out in small and medium businesses.”

-Shelley Stern Grach, Microsoft Chicago, on the “Social Impact Strong” Keynote

“This was our third year participating in a row, and the energy was off the hook! Our booth was busy all night and we met several great leads and contacts for future business. The Exchange is a great chance to connect with a diverse group of people from any type and size of business. Count us in for next year!”
