'Tech' means many things to many groups of people.
When media planners serve banner ads for their clients, they use technology.
When engineers code a new Facebook app, they use technology.
It's time for both of these groups to share ideas, stories and help each other grow.
This site aims to serve everyone and anyone in Chicagoland that is interested in learning more about the companies and personalities that use technology, create technology and market technology. This site also aims to show folks outside of Chicagoland that there is quite a bit of start up,VC, media and marketing activity happening in the Midwest.
Stick around, you may learn a thing or two. If nothing else, you'll earn a new appreciation for that new start-up, over worked sales person or agency media planner.
