Techweek was an amazing event. I had the fantastic chance to see the range of content that was presented—much of it at the forefront of business and technology today—and to enjoy working with incredibly talented people. Most importantly, I had the opportunity to contribute meaningfully to an impactful event and to meet and speak with some incredible panelists, speakers, and leaders.

The people I met were hard-working and wonderful to talk to. Getting to know the Volunteer team alone was rewarding enough. The perks of being a part of the event speak for themselves as far as having access to the speakers, panels and events.

Eddie B., Chicago 2014 Volunteer

It was a great networking and educational experience with upstanding professionals. Anyone interested in the tech or marketing field would enjoy discovering new start ups and meeting professionals as a volunteer.

Kati K., 2014 Chicago Volunteer

It was fun and a great environment. We were made to feel very appreciated. This was a great experience. I look forward to next year and hope to take advantage of some events that take place.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
