Downtown Chicago: The Hot Spot for Technology and Startups!

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Local temperatures may not be sizzling just yet, but the technology and startup worlds are hotter than ever between June 23 and 29th here in the Chicago Loop!

Whether you would like to connect with someone who has the skill set to develop the next big app or expand your startup, Chicago is the place to be these days. From Motorola Mobility’s new home above the entrepreneurial workspace 1871 in the Merchandise Mart to Google’s upcoming move to West Loop’s Fulton River District, downtown Chicago is exploding with innovation.

Explore the Built In Chicago web site to get a taste of just how many Chicagoans are brimming with ideas and have successfully launched. Grubhub food delivery, on-demand dry cleaning service DryV (like Uber for laundry), parking spotter app SpotHero, residential leasing startup StreamLease, and real time nightlife app SceneTap are just a few of the cool ideas that have come to fruition in the last four years. Whether you consider yourself a techie or have an entrepreneurial itch you want to scratch, you’ll definitely want to get a ticket for Techweek Chicago, presented by Microsoft, where over 200 major players in the technology and startup world will swarm the River North area.

There’s no better time than now and no better place than Chicago to share that great idea you’ve had or put those computer science and engineering skills to good use. Let us order the Uber while we find you the perfect apartment in thriving River North and Fulton River District, where stimulating opportunities, delicious food, and creative cocktails abound!
