On Tuesday, September 26, founders and leaders of growth-stage companies in Chicago are invited to an Open House to learn about The Junto Institute's Apprenticeship program.
We're pleased to share the video from JuntoNight 2016, the graduation event for the JuntoIV cohort. In the video, thoughts and soundbites from the CEOs of the six companies - Arrow Payments, Cristaux, Link Capital, Red Caffeine, ReviewTrackers, and Schlep - are featured along with opening remarks from alumni who moderated the panel discussion.
Last week marked the culmination of Junto's fourth cohort, celebrated by our annual JuntoNight event. The evening featured a panel of founders and leaders from the six companies - five of them CEOs and the other a COO. Below is a summary of their reflections and shared experiences from their company's participation in Junto's Apprenticeship program.
Our fourth cohort completed its Apprenticeship experience last week, culminating in JuntoNight, where we celebrate their achievement. Over 200 people were in attendance at the energetic and emotion-filled event which honored six graduating companies: Arrow Payments, Cristaux, Link Capital, Red Caffeine, ReviewTrackers, and Schlep.
One of the traditions of JuntoNight is that each company has the opportunity to make an "Ask": a specific request of the guests in attendance at the event.
This year, each CEO of the six graduating companies asked the attendees for introductions. Below are the companies' descriptions and their Asks. If you're able to help any of them, please click the orange button which will take you to a brief form to submit your contact info.
We're proud to share that Spikeball (J2) has landed on the 2016 Inc. 5000 list at #289. This is the company's second straight year on the list, coming on the heels of their Shark Tank appearance in 2015 and doubling the size of their team over the past year.
Congratulations to the many members of the JuntoTribe who have been recently recognized for their entrepreneurial and leadership accomplishments!
