> Dear Mr. Kahalas,
> I’d like to inform you of ThinkChicago, a program the Mayor’s Office is launching in October. ThinkChicago will bring together college seniors from within Chicago and without to visit local innovative businesses, participate in panels with the mayor, and attend Chicago Ideas Week and TEDxMidwest.
> Our application deadline is fast approaching (Tuesday), and unfortunately we haven’t received any applications from IIT. I want to make sure we get the word out to ITT students because this is a unique opportunity for any undergraduate student in their final year of studies interested in tech, business, and/or entrepreneurship.
> I’ve attached the original press release describing the program. In addition students can visitwww.chicagoideas.com/thinkchicago <http://www.chicagoideas.com/thinkchicago> <http://www.chicagoideas.com/thinkchicago> to get more information about the program and apply. The application is fairly simple, so I think students shouldn’t need much time to fill it out. The only time intensive piece might be obtaining an unofficial transcript. I hope you can disseminate this information to your students.
> Please let me know if you have any questions. I’d be happy to talk further either by email or on the phone.
