1871 gets $2.5 million from state for expansion
from Crain's Chicago Business
The long-awaited expansion of 1871 is underway, thanks to a $2.5 million state grant. The city's best-known incubator for tech startups is growing by 50 percent, adding 25,000 square feet next to its home on the 12th floor of the Merchandise Mart. The expansion, which has been in the works since Howard Tullman was named CEO of 1871 late last year, will provide startups a place to grow while staying near other entrepreneurs.
