CHICAGO HAS EMERGED AS ONE OF THE BEST PLACES TO LIVE, WORK & START A NEW BUSINESS !
When people think about successful startups, the Midwest region of the United States does not normally come to mind. Traditionally, the most successful startups come from areas such as Silicon Valley and New York City in the U.S. and locations in the United Kingdom and Israel. However, it might be surprising to learn that some of the best startups, both established and up and coming, have begun to come out of Chicago, Illinois.
The reasons why Chicago has become a global startup hub is due in large part to its low cost of entry ( for the time being ), its well-trafficked international airport, and its fun night life and entertainment. This results in a desirable location to start a business and be employed by a business, creating a large talent pool for startups to consider for hiring purposes. The following are the top 10 startups in Chicago.
