Welcome to Tech Scenes where we meet up with ceos, founders and investors to learn what makes cities in their tech startup scene thrive.

On this episode we meet up with Howard Tullman, a well known Chicago serial entrepreneur, venture capitalist, educator, and writer. We start the day at the Merchandise Mart, home of 1871 then take a ride through Chicago to visit the Kaplan Institute at IIT. Along the way we talk about building Chicago by connecting entrepreneurship, technology, academics, business and government.

The Ed Kaplan Family Institute for Innovation and Tech Entrepreneurship takes a hands-on approach to problem solving with dynamic projects, collaborations, and real outcomes and products. It is devoted to fostering collaboration among all of Illinois Tech’s students, faculty, alumni, and business partners—and is designed to develop the home-grown and diverse technology talent needed in today’s business world. www.web.iit.edu/kaplan-institute
