Illinois Technology Assocation
ITA focuses on scaling Illinois tech companies. Whether you are looking to build your team, promote your business or collaborate with like-minded tech executives, we’ve got you covered.
We aren’t a place you “go” – we are a network you access, a resource you leverage, an advisor you trust.
At ITA you’ll find your peers. Peers that are past the start-up stage and are looking for the next level of growth. ITA is here to help – to connect you, to educate you and to provide the resources you need to scale your business. Think of our staff as an extension of yours.
- Access – We provide the ecosystem and infrastructure to network with other similar-sized, fast-growing companies. From our CEO dinner to our IoT Summit, we help facilitate education and connections that result in growth opportunities for you and your business.
- Talent – Finding and retaining talent is hard. We help make it easier with services like our Talent Portal and consulting from our in-house talent expert. We are also working hard to promote Chicago as a premier destination for tech talent at conferences and universities throughout the country.
- Visibility – We get the word out about our members; leveraging our outlets for your content is part of membership. We can work with you to develop a multi-part article series, promote your news and more – all at a fraction of the cost of traditional media outlets.
