CHICAGO — Students win $15,000 in college scholarships as part of Future Founders Startup Program Showcase. Prior to the pitch day, students from Chicago's high schools were exposed to entrepreneurs throughout the city, learning about what it takes to be an entrepreneur. Broken into teams, the students then created a business idea, built a working prototype and crafted a business pitch for the community showcase on July 24.
