We’re taking Succeed Faster, an exclusive, invite only, premiere career acceleration conference for young professionals to the next level! On July 19-21, 2013, some of the most driven, motivated, ambitious, creative, and inspiring 20-somethings will all converge on Chicago for their most meaningful 2.5 days of their lives. There will be power networking, BIG dreaming, idea sharing, and intensive professional development from some of the most successful young entrepreneurs, nationally acclaimed authors and speakers, and industry specific thought leaders from around the country.
The City & The Venue
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer's recent visit to the 1871 community is a testament to the great work that they are doing in building a great tech hub in Chicago. Succeed Faster is quickly gaining recognition from around the world and our goal is to expand our reach by bringing the conference to multiple locations. We have held the conference in Chicago, Illinois and San Antonio, Texas and are returning to the "Windy City" at the request of 1871 with plans to hold future events in Atlanta, Dallas, Des Moines, Washington DC and San Francisco.

Do you have the IT factor?
We'll not only show you how to get there... we'll show you how to get there FASTER than you ever thought possible.
We’re looking for people with the IT factor. Only college students
and young professionals who aren’t satisﬁed with merely surviving
upon graduation. We want future CEO’s, start-up entrepreneurs,
Peace Corps volunteers, and people that are looking for a social
group that will propel them forward with contacts, information, and
guidance. If you’re willing to push yourself and commit to action,
you MAY be the kind of person that this life-changing weekend was
