Chicago's Innovation Ecosystem

Is Rising Together

Hi Luke,

The Chicago Innovation Ecosystem is bustling this summer with new product launches, mergers & acquisitions, pitch competitions and new funding rounds making waves across Chicago's neighborhoods. We hope you'll save the date for this year's Nominee Celebration on September 21st at Ignite Glass Studios, where we will celebrate the 2022 Chicago Innovation Award nominees AND bring attention to all the ways that Chicago's innovators are rising together, as captured in our book Rising Together: The Story of Chicago's Innovation Ecosystem.

We've included below some videos from our recent events, community news, and excerpts from this book that showcase what makes Chicago's Innovation Ecosystem so special. We hope you'll check it out and register for one of our upcoming in-person or virtual events!
