Techweek – Chicago

Chicago, IL /

Techweek sees a causal reversal at work in the rise of technology cities. Rather than being just a feature of success, the emergence of substantial and sustainable businesses – which it terms “Hero Companies” – is an input into the creation and development of robust tech ecosystems. Hero Companies are high-growth businesses that achieve a substantial and sustainable impact and incubate talent, ideas, and most importantly, spinoffs. This theory posits that the spinoff process is the most effective method to spur dynamic hubs of growth, innovation, and wealth generation.
