It’s been a year since we opened our Chicago office and the city’s tech scene continues to boom! Some recent highlights and news from the tech scene out of the Windy City:

MerchandiseMartChicagoThe Move to Merchandise Mart: Originally opened as a wholesale showroom space in the 1930s, this sprawling building (which has its own zip code!) has expanded and evolved drastically over the years. Today, the unique floor plan is providing an attractive option for tech companies that embrace open layouts and collaborative environments. Some of the space’s upcoming tenants will include popular online review service Yelp and credit card payment software Braintree. They’ll join a number of tech companies, including 1871, a community center and digital startup coworking space, that has already made the Merch home.

From One Coworking Space to Another: Coworking options in the Windy City are also expanding, as seen with the recent announcement of Matter, a space specifically targeted for technology startups in the medical device and biopharma industries. The space, which has the backing of  Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s ChicagoNEXT technology and innovation council, is currently accepting applications for new tenants.

490521817Other Movers & Shakers: After a recent move from one West Loop building to another, electronic legal service provider Inventus LLC plans to double their workforce in the near future. Other tech companies in the Chicago area that have recently ramped up hiring efforts have included: Sprout Social, Codifyd Inc and Grubhub.
