Community-driven media and events company kicks off Chicago property with beer, open call to local innovators
CHICAGO, June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Streetwise Media, a division of the American City Business Journals, is launching its newest digital media and events property Chicago Inno today with a meetup at the Clark St. Ale House. The fresh site aims to reach Chicago's most connected, active and influential audience with accessible news that tackles everything related to tech, innovation and disruption in the city.
Chicago Inno builds on the momentum of Streetwise Media's popular regional publications, BostInno in Boston and InTheCapital in Washington, D.C. Its core team will consist of general manager Will Flanagan, a former member of the Chicago tech startup community; staff writer Jim Dallke, an experienced community newspaper writer; and senior account executive Anthony Morris, formerly an Amazon.com executive.
"Chicago's innovation economy has developed substantially over the past several years – it's nurturing some of the important ideas, people and companies that will change the U.S. and the world," said Chase Garbarino, co-founder and CEO of Streetwise Media. "We're excited to give the city the attention it deserves with Chicago Inno, while also starting a dialog on what it can do to encourage progress."
"Chicago Inno is visual, it's fun, it's informative, but most of all it's a resource where we can be honest about any shortcomings and celebrate successes as a community," said Flanagan. "Our team wants to collaborate with everyone from the bigwigs to startups and students in the city, so stay tuned for monthly meet-ups at area bars and exciting, quarterly events."
Anyone interested in Chicago tech and innovation is invited to join Chicago Inno's launch party on Thursday, June 5th from 6PM - 9PM at the Clark St. Ale House, 742 N Clark St. More information and free ticket reservations are available at: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/chicago-inno-launch-the-inno-troduction-tickets-11698507551?aff=eorg.
