General Assembly Chicago is turning one! To celebrate we’ve partnered with Time Out Chicago to host “Made in Chicago,” a week honoring the local innovators and trends that make The Windy City second to none—from food and comedy to sports and media to tech and entrepreneurship. Kick things off with our birthday party on November 5th, and enjoy our incredible lineup of free events, panel discussions, and classes running until November 17th. Follow the conversation on Twitter and Instagram with our hashtag #MadeinCHI.
