At hiredMYway.com, we love all things tech, so we’re celebrating our recent break into the Chicago market at the Techweek Conference in Chicago, starting today!
Read on for more on TechWeek, our announcement of the Tech Top 10 Contest and the growing tech industry in the Second City.
Techweek is an event where Chicago & Midwestern professionals in the tech field or working for tech companies explore exhibition, pitches, product launches, and interactive events in innovation, new technology, design & media, and entrepreneurship. Over 10,000 people explore more than 60 events over 5 days.
Well, Chicago has been growing as a city for tech industry, as many successful tech start-ups and businesses have grown out of roots in the Windy City – including Groupon, GrubHub, and Restaurant.com. One reason for the growth in tech is the development of a venture capital community in Chicago with the ability to fund new start-ups in the area. Chicago also has a vibrant economy, eliminating some of the economic barriers that other cities have been experiencing. There are also lots of connections companies find attractive, like the large advertising industry in Chicago. According to a recent report, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and SalesForce are all expanding their Chicago offices to capitalize on the local talent and the connections to nearby advertising agencies.
