The Chicago Booth Entrepreneurial Roundtable provides educational programs and seminars for business owners and their advisers as well as those who are interested in acquiring or starting a business. Started in 1991 for the alumni of the Chicago Booth School of Business (formerly, the Chicago GSB), today the Roundtable is open to all


Programs feature successful entrepreneurs or experts in growing businesses speaking on topics such as ideas for new businesses, building a management team, locating financing, developing a market and growing through acquisition. Attendance fees for these professional events are quite modest.
