ABOUT OUR HOST 1871
Where do Chicago’s brightest digital designers, engineers and entrepreneurs go to shape new technologies, disrupt old business models, and reset the boundaries of what’s possible? 1871! The Great Chicago Fire story of 1871 isn’t really about the fire. It’s about what happened next: A remarkable moment when the most brilliant engineers, architects and inventors came together to build a new city. Their innovations – born of passion and practical ingenuity – shaped not just Chicago, but the modern world. What started 140 years ago continues to this day. 1871 is a place where you can share ideas, make mistakes, work hard, build your business and, with a little luck, change the world.
