Tech equity working group

Our entrepreneurship programs are designed to provide equitable opportunities and outcomes for women, trans, and non-binary tech founders in Chicago.

About the Tech Equity Working Group

 Chicago continues to be one of the top cities for inclusive, economic growth and entrepreneurship. It is home to the highest number of women-owned startups in the country, and is renowned for its strong seed state ecosystem. Our aim is to ensure that founders who have been historically marginalized are given the same opportunities and access necessary for success.

We established the Chicago Tech Equity Working Group, a rolling cohort of 15-20 Chicago accelerators, incubators, and funds, in 2021 as a way to expand equitable access by identifying, piloting, and scaling solutions that work to advance gender and racial equity in entrepreneurship.
