  • Cover the mission of the co-op: 
 
    From Jeremy Rothschild: 
        The Chicago Ideas Week Co-op is a movement. It is made up of innovative, empowering and community-driven individuals breaking down silos and sparking change across Chicago. In 2013, we're launching a revamped and refined Community Partnerships program, aligned with our mission of nurturing great ideas and bolstering actionable initiatives. This is our distinctive community; our collection of great ambitions, profound ideas and deep relationships: This is The Co-op. 
 
Members of the Co-op share our commitment of investing in this great city, through building or leading socially vested businesses, innovative nonprofits and grassroots initiatives pioneering what it means to be an entrepreneur. They're doing work with a purpose. And we're bringing them together to achieve even greater things through this close network of thinkers. 
 
    From the CIW Co-op page: 
        The Co-op is a group of highly motivated, community-driven individuals breaking down silos and sparking connections across Chicago. Aligned with CIW’s mission of nurturing great ideas and bolstering actionable initiatives, the Co-op is our distinctive community, our collection of great ambitions, profound ideas and stellar relationships.

  • We started late, and went over a bunch of random issues.
  • We've got more questions than answers at this point.
  • You guys time traveled?  I missed the wrong meeting.....SMH
  • You didn't miss much. Just do some research on a tech coop on the list and come back on the first of the month.
  • Cool.
  • Co-ops:
  • RadicalDesigns: Web Dev shop in Oakland. Handled a lot of cients. Workers seemed friendly and professional (Alex).
  • C4 Tech: had a wide range of services.
  • Civilization Systems: Worked on schools, which requires compliance with state standards, so it can't be anybody.
  • Tadpole:  Developer group with a strong emphasis on teamwork.
