Donate Your Venue for Tech Month Chicago Events

Have a Venue? Here’s how to donate your venue for tech events in October 2019:

This is a great fit for co-working spaces, offices, restaurants, schools, and other large organizations.

As a venue donor, you pledge to make a specific space in your venue available for tech events free of charge during the month of October 2019. You’ll work with people and groups who have great ideas, but no place to hold their events. Your organization will meet potential new members and people who will build a community around your space.  You are responsible for working out any logistical details with people who contact you about using your space in the month of October.

When you pledge to make your space available you pledge to do the following:

  • Take calls and answer emails from members of the tech community about the use of your space.
  • Work with and accommodate women, people of color, minorities, people with disabilities, persons of lower economic status, and other marginalized groups who are often treated unequally in the tech industry.

Thanks in advance for contributing to this great cause!

Here are some highlights from last year:

  • Fourteen venues donated their spaces to help with our awareness month.
  • Our social media campaign had over a million impressions on our twitter outreach alone.
  • Our calendar featured and promoted over 250 tech events in the Chicagoland area.
