> CHICAGO CONNECTORY

THE CENTRAL HUB OF IOT AND INNOVATION IN CHICAGO, LEADING THE INITIATIVE AROUND THE WORLD

The Chicago Connectory is a co-creation space and IoT incubator located in Chicago’s historic Merchandise Mart. Our co-working space builds business, collaboration, and network opportunities to our community.

The Chicago Connectory opened its doors in May 2017. The idea for the Chicago Connectory sparked with Bosch, a multinational engineering and technology company and 1871, a non-profit digital startup incubator.

The name Connectory is a combination of the words “connection” and “factory”, two central elements of Bosch’s vision for the future. With that in mind, our space was created to bring connections among people, devices, and ecosystems.

GLOBAL NETWORK
Our Founder, Dennis Boecker, built the path for innovation around the globe, where four more Connectory locations were opened. Our global Connectory locations exist in Guadalajara, Mexico; Curitiba, Brazil; Stuttgart, Germany; and Shanghai, China. Each location is built by Bosch in partnership with innovation hubs.

OUR COMMUNITY
The Chicago Connectory is home to IoT startups, mentors, and collaborators. We also work closely with universities and students to continue to spread the knowledge and resources of IoT.

 

Our global mentor network connects members to IoT specialists around the world, which allows our communities to grow together. This opens opportunities for project collaboration and ideas.
