Chicago Beyond introduces The Collective, a first-of-its kind investment experience designed to unleash the power of social innovators and entrepreneurs from across the city who are fighting to create opportunities for youth and communities of color.

The Collective is a way to stand boldly with local leaders and back their efforts to build a more just Chicago.

The first Collective members were chosen based off their local roots; an idea, product, program, or service they want to grow or launch; their experience in their respective industry or issue area around their idea; and their desire for a collaborative learning opportunity.
