Dec 9th and 10th: Rocked the Recession comes to Chicago!

Flyover Geeks has teamed up with Social Tech Pop to bring Chicago a business conference focusing on businesses that not only survived the recession but are thriving in spite of it!

On Dec. 9th, the Chicago Sync Center will play host to 15 different panels on topics as diverse as legal aspects for small businesses to consider in 2011, tax deals, how entrepreneurs can fund their own retirement, get quality health insurance and a variety of other issues all entrepreneurs face at one point or another in their growth.

On December 10th, the main event takes place in Loyola University’s Mundelein Center where 750 members of Chicago’s entrepreneurial community will gather for a day of speakers and panels designed to give advice and inspiration to entrepreneurs. You’ll find out what successes and mistakes entrepreneurs have made int heir journeys and where they plan to take their business in 2011.

One of our keynote speakers is going to Mike Evans of Grubhub who definitely knows a thing or two about creating an incredible brand while growing a business (and also happens to be an excellent speaker.)

On our Startup panel you’ll hear from Jeb Ory of The App House, Ben Reid of Foodie Registry, Swathy Prithivi of Present Bee, Kevin Weilgus of the upcoming, already causing waves Jabber Jury.

But there is more- much more. You’ll also hear from Mark Papadas of the inspiring “I Am 4 Kids“, Chicago’s “First lady of Film” Ruth Ratney, Michael Davis of the wildly successful The Savid Group Mike Rhodes of the Sync Center and many more!

At the end of the day, there will be a networking reception (complete with cocktails) where everyone can mingle, make deals and discuss how they Rocked the Recession!
