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.
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. This year, 1871 + ITA are virtually hosting the fourth annual ScaleUp Chicago event on Tuesday, May 19th. We’ll be bringing the best professional development resources and networking to you at home!
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.
This International Women’s Day at 1871 was remarkable! The impact was so strong because of the thought leaders, entrepreneurs and professionals like you in our community. It was a day dedicated to covering topics that concern everyone, from a woman’s perspective. Underscoring this year’s theme “Each for Equal,” everyone was invited to join in on panels, breakout discussions, and fireside chats ranging from product design to health and wellness.
