    2019 Chicago Ideas Lab Application Form

    Thank you for your interest in hosting a 2019 Chicago Ideas Lab!

    Chicago Ideas strives to cultivate new ideas and inspire action. Our Labs Program provides attendees a unique, inspiring glimpse into the inner workings of companies and organizations that may otherwise be unavailable to the public. Lab Hosts leverage this opportunity to showcase their innovation and expertise to an intellectually curious audience through a hands-on, interactive experience.

    A great Lab:

    • Highlights a company or organization’s expertise and innovation
    • Accommodates between 10-50 people
    • Provides a behind-the-scenes and exclusive experience for attendees
    • Is unique and interactive; the more hands-on the better!

    Chicago Ideas handles all ticketing, provides volunteers at the Lab experience to help manage registration, and also helps to promote the Lab, including an event listing on our website. The specific Lab content, size, and timing will vary based on the experience and will be finalized by the Lab Host and Chicago Ideas together.

    All applications will go through a review process and will be subject to potential fees associated with partnership packages which will be communicated upon review. To apply, submit the below form in its entirety before June 7, 2019. If you have any questions, reach out to
