      ENTERPRISEWORKS CHICAGO

      We have a vision:


      A startup for startups, EnterpriseWorks Chicago (EWC) is a university based operation charged with creating a robust entrepreneurial community to nurture commercialization and accelerate viable high technology startups throughout the Chicagoland community. Our (EWC's) function is to engage the University of Illinois at Chicago campus, leverage University wide assets, and provide entrepreneurs in the community access to resources within and beyond the University to create viable startups that contribute economic benefit to the State of Illinois.

      EnterpriseWorks Chicago operates around coordinating or fostering five pillars of vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystems. Infrastructure facilitates both the physical connection and virtual communication around which entrepreneurial communities thrive. Based at a university and in the heart of the Illinois Medical District, with proximity to world renowned industries and research institutions, the source of innovation is abundant. A strong pipeline of both fresh and savvy talent is vital to the success of innovation based ventures. Access to peer, industry, investment, and community networks allows entrepreneurs to gain valuable feedback and benchmark perspective. And awareness around accessing capital in its various forms, stages and sources enables more effective fundraising efforts.
