1871 & Data Science Chicago

1871 is a center for digital entrepreneurs located in the historic Merchandise Mart. Home to 400+ entrepreneurs representing approximately 100 startups, the center is a nonprofit cooperative effort of Chicago’s business leaders, civic organizations and city and state government leaders. 


Data Science Chicago brings together people interested in data science: the analytical "statistics and machine learning" side, the creative "visualization and design" side, the verbal "communication and story-telling" side, and especially the area in-between those extremes. Our members are professionals, students, consultants, and entrepreneurs that love data and understand the potential value it brings for society, business, and government.
