Another year, another successful TechWeek. This year didn’t disappoint, with exciting new Chicago startups, enlightening panels, and awesome competitions.

Farshore started out the week at the Expo where we heard all about Crowdfynd, tried out Freeosk’s sample vending machine, and tested our physical strength with the nextstep.io mobile app. Also exhibiting were Farshore partner companies TablesavvyDigitalGroundUpStock Manufacturing Co.PackBack Books, and Robotoaster!
