1871 Associate Membership


Organization Description

The story of the Great Chicago Fire 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.


Chicago’s brightest digital designers, engineers and entrepreneurs are shaping new technologies, disrupting old business models, and resetting the boundaries of what’s possible.


If that sounds like you, join us.


Come to a place where you can share ideas, make mistakes, work hard, build your business and, with a little luck, change the world.
