Entrepreneurship

Did you know that KPMG has labeled Chicago a top 10 global innovation hub? Since non-profit digital startup incubator 1871 opened in 2012, Chicago’s entrepreneurship scene has exploded, with over 14,000 registered tech businesses (per the U.S. News & World Report). With deep networks within all of Chicago’s incubators, accelerators and coworking spaces, WorldChicago is adept at creating workshop, and fellowship-based programming for aspiring and established entrepreneurs.

Chicago wasn’t always known as the innovation and entrepreneurship city of the U.S.. Our impression is that it is slowly but safely on its way to surpass even Silicon Valley. Therefore, we can conclude all is possible; it just requires determined individuals ready to start the change.
