Work With Chicago Innovation

The Chicago Innovation team is made up of people who are passionate about Chicago and want to celebrate, educate, and connect its innovation community in unique ways. If you share that passion and think you’d make a good fit for the team, we’d love to hear from you.

Organization description
Chicago Innovation is a year-long series of events and activities with one overarching mission — to accelerate the growth of innovation in the Chicago region. Our goal is to help the economy of the Chicago region grow through the jobs, revenues, and improved lives that are the result of innovation.

Chicago Innovation Summer Internship

Chicago Innovation is looking for a highly motivated individual to join the team as a Summer Intern starting in June 2018.

Established in 2002, Chicago Innovation celebrates, educates and connects Chicago’s innovation community. The Summer Intern would play a co-leadership role in identifying organizations that should be nominated for the Chicago Innovation Awards, which annually shine a bright light on the creative spirit of Chicago by focusing attention on the most innovative new products and services introduced in the region. The intern would be part of the team involved in analyzing all new product and service submissions. The intern will work with the executive team at Chicago Innovation, along with our panel of judges, to promote and evaluate all nominations received.

In addition, the intern would also play a supportive role with the various Chicago Innovation events and activities that will take place this summer, which include the Chicago Innovation Foundation’s Un-Gala, the Chicago Innovation Summit, Past Winners Showcase, Nominee Reception, Women’s Mentoring Co-op, Chicago Student Invention Convention and other programs.

Students can learn more at This is a paid internship.

If interested, please submit a resume and cover letter to [email protected].

Thank you,
