ABOUT THE LATINX INCUBATOR
The Latinx Incubator provides entrepreneurs with strategic programming, resources, technical support and access to networks. Through the 12-week program, cohort members attend specialized workshops, meet one-on-one with industry experts and focus on becoming investment ready.
The program culminates in two exclusive events. The first is a private pitch with key stakeholders from 1871, IHCC and the investment community where startups will have the opportunity to secure capital. The second is a capstone Demo Day with the Chicago tech ecosystem.
As part of a partnership between IHCC and 1871, this incubator is part of a larger effort to address diversity and inclusion challenges in the innovation economy and technology sector. The Latinx Incubator is building an inclusive entrepreneurial tech ecosystem that actively supports diverse founders, setting them up for growth in the Latinx startup ecosystem.
