Chicago transforms from second city to startup city
from The Huffington Post
While the Mayor Rahm Emanuel touts Chicago's diversity, he's also quick to point out that the startup industry has provided the gas for the most recent boom. In 2002, only 11 digital startups were launched in Chicago. In 2012, 367 startups launched — that is one new startup every 24 hours. The Chicago tech industry employs 40,000 people and Emanuel has set a new goal to add another 40,000 new tech jobs in the next decade.
