The 13th Annual Momentum Awards were unlike any that we’ve ever hosted before and there is no way it could’ve happened without our fantastic attendees and sponsors. Thank you for attending the virtual show, participating in the pre-show experiences, and—most of all—for supporting 1871 and the entire Chicago tech community.
As a social activities management platform for senior living and homecare teams, ConnectCareHero has always centered around the safety and fulfillment of the elder population and thus they have been deeply connected to the fight against COVID-19 since the start.
When the pandemic hit, they jumped into action to modify their existing technology to better meet the changing needs of clients and the elder care community at large. We spoke with ConnectCareHero founders Osvaldo Montelongo and Tornu Ngwayah recently to discuss their team’s hard work.
To close out our 8th birthday week, let’s look back on what’s been happening at 1871 over the last 12 months! In short, we’ve created valuable partnerships, won awards, expanded the diversity of our membership, and are now directly supporting in the fight against COVID-19.
Won’t you take a walk down memory lane with us?
ScaleUp Chicago is a spring conference that brings the tech community together to learn, connect, and share stories.

Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, your company may have mandated that you work from home for the time being. Though you’re probably not new to remote work, this situation is a bit different: we have no idea when we will be back in the office and, in the meantime, we can’t work anywhere but from within our homes.
