We're excited to announce the second Silicon Prairie Social, a technology networking event in the western Chicago suburbs. The event will be held Thursday, January 24 at Mullen’s Bar & Grill in Lisle. After our successful first event in September, we’re excited to do it again. This is a great opportunity to connect in a fun, informal setting with like-minded people in technology!
This time around we have more drinks, more food, and some great sponsors! IT vendor ChicagoMicro joins us as the event’s Premier Sponsor, along with sponsors Microsoft, M5 Networks, HostedLabs, Kirix, Optimus Solutions, Piocon, Bradley Wiltjer Marketing Group, and M. Hedayat + Associates. Be sure to pay our sponsors a visit as they’re the ones who make this all possible.
Why should I come?
Free admission (RSVP required)
Free drinks and hors d’oeuvres!
Mingle, network, and learn with other successful tech oriented professionals like yourself.
Who Can Attend?
Silicon Prairie Social is specifically for upwardly mobile tech professionals, tech executives, tech entrepreneurs, technology service providers, Internet professionals, Web 2.0 and startup companies, and the mobile industry.
What’s different from last time?
Our goal is to make Silicon Prairie Social a place where quality business relationships can be fostered, resulting in mutually-beneficial business relationships between attendees. In keeping with this goal, and due to feedback we received from the first event, we will be focusing the audience by limiting access: No professional recruiters, staffing agencies or active job seekers will be permitted.
Who’s behind this?
Silicon Prairie Social is founded and hosted by Lisle-based XNet. XNet has shown its commitment to growing the suburban tech community by contributing both money and effort to continue to make this a success. The driving force behind Silicon Prairie Social is XNet’s Tim Courtney and Arthur Zards.
