Who We Are


University CoWork opened in 2018 as the first full-service business development center south of the Loop in Chicago with one goal: to develop the capacity of our members and underinvested surrounding community.

We now help our members connect with people all over the globe. The launch of Virtual Accelerator - which brings world-class resources and community to entrepreneurs wherever they are - and our AI-powered business matchmaking events enhance our ability to help small businesses grow wherever they are.
