"Chicago is uniquely positioned to serve as a global leader in technology and business innovation.

"The opportunity now is making sure that tech professionals across the country see the value in starting and building their careers here. Rise, our agency leading the charge on digital communications, is poised to exceed expectations in targeting and nurturing our audience."

"Rise is eager to invest in the growth of Chicago's tech community, especially as it relates to profiling Chicago as one of the most diversified and inclusive tech ecosystems in the country," says Larry Fisher, CEO of Rise Interactive.
