    Before we kick off a week that celebrates innovation and the exchange of good ideas, we invite you to help celebrate some of the ideas you won't hear about. Join us on October 8 for “My Biggest Mistake” a night that promises to be entertaining, poignant, and (potentially) full of useful lessons.

    Prominent Chicagoans will take the stage to share their story. We'll hear from everyone from politicians and business leaders, to comedians and journalists. The event is produced by Table XI, the official technology partner for Chicago Ideas Week, in collaboration with The Second City. The ability to embrace failure is a key value for both organizations, and "My Biggest Mistake Night" plans to celebrate it boldly!
