Event Summary
Excited to host another Chicago great, Sam Yagan!

Sam needs no introduction to the Chicago tech scene. A formidable founder, investor, and supporter.

Sam’s prior entrepreneurial ventures in the consumer internet sector include SparkNotes, still the dominant brand of study guides, and MetaMachine, Inc., once the largest peer-to-peer file-sharing network in the world. Sam sold SparkNotes to iTurf, Inc. and then Barnes & Noble, Inc.

He later co-founded OkCupid, a pioneer in the online dating space. He later sold it to Match Group. 

He also co-founded Excelerate Labs, which later on became TechStars Chicago.

We'll talk about his upbringing, his career moves, and his methods of staying ahead of the game in so many different industries.

Big thank you to Workbox for hosting.

Giant thanks to SVB and Redmond Construction for sponsoring!
