Here’s Mayor Emanuel in the Sun Times

“Programs like ThinkChicago are encouraging more students to stay and build in Chicago. We have a high density of amazing universities and students here who just need to be fostered properly to innovate and build the next big thing,” Gupta said.

“Last week, Mayor Emanuel forecasted that Chicago would be considered a start-up hub in three years. Thanks to programs like ThinkChicago and spaces like 1871, I fully agree with that prediction.”

Gupta’s company, Tabule, was incorporated this month with $25,000 in seed money from Catapult.

Tabule is an application-based classroom productivity tool designed to help students discuss lecture topics and ask each other questions, organize study groups and interact with professors.

“Your parents are gonna be very proud of you for making the right decision about Chicago,” Emanuel told Gupta.

“He never would be in the situation of incorporating in Silicon Valley. It’s just not possible….Neil is living proof that it can happen.”

ThinkChicago is a two-day event that will be held during the week of Oct. 8-to-14 coinciding with

Chicago Ideas Week. Applications are due Sept. 7 and are available at www.chicagoideas.com/thinkchicago.

Here’s a screenshot of the Chicago Ideas website this morning, showing just how seriously Mayor Emanuel is supporting technology in Chicago
