“Ranked as one of the largest and fastest-growing tech markets in the country, the greater Chicago area is an important stop on our 2018 Big Book of AV Tour,” Stampede President & COO Kevin Kelly said today. “The Chicago technology community has seen a major boost over the last three to five years, as a result of its diverse community, stable living environment and its anchor resource in the major universities in the area.
