Innovation Trek

Students who participate in the Innovation Trek travel to Silicon Valley to meet with global leaders in emerging companies and venture capital, in industries such as biotech and life sciences, climate tech, artificial intelligence/machine learning, and more. They learn from business and legal experts regarding issues facing startups at every stage of the company life cycle, from inception to exit to life as a public company. This uniquely University of Chicago experience leverages the Law School’s historic leadership in the field of law and economics to facilitate meaningful learning and connection between alumni, students, and other speakers who are thought leaders in this space.
