ChIPs presents Rise Up, this year's iteration of our NextGen Summit that will inspire you to rise up in your career, set intentional goals, learn skills to increase your impact, and network to develop the relationships you need to advance.

One day to change your career

It's a fact: women who attend business conferences go further, faster.

ChIPs NextGen Summit is the leading event for rising women stars in tech and IP law. Expect top notch content and great networking. According to a study in the Harvard Business Review, women who attended a women’s business conference were twice as likely to be promoted — and three times as likely to get a raise.* It’s all about connection. According to the study, 71% of attendees said they felt ‘more connected to others” after the event — 78% said they felt more optimistic about the future.” And when you’re feeling connected and confident, there are no limits to what you can do.
