Chicago is our home, but not our only market. We want to export our home-grown solutions to help solve the world’s water challenges.
Chicago sits on one of the world’s largest bodies of freshwater, part of the Great Lakes, which provide drinking water to 40 million people.
We are a testbed for corporate and government innovation on water issues, with a wide variety of utilities, big and small.
We are home to more than 400 large companies, including 36 in the Fortune 500 and 31 in the S&P 500.
We also are home to the nation’s top tech incubator, 1871, and four top-tier research universities, all of which are our partners.
