Chicago Ideas Week is almost here again, the weeklong parade of intelligentsias and intelligentistas that will be holding talks, panels and generally using big words at venues all over our fair city. The full schedule has been posted here, and, obviously, this being a small-business site, the ones we're most stoked for are the ones relevant to all aspects of entrepreneurship. And, fortunately, there is no shortage of that.
The panels run the gamut from Microsoft presenting a talk called simply Technology (which, seemingly, will address innovations and how to keep pace with them) and SEO firm Rise Interactive discussing online marketing and the life span of a website to co-working space 1871 breaking down the process of building a startup in Chicago.
There's a lot of stuff and plenty of time to plan your week, so hop to it, y'all.
