ABOUT

Technori is where the world’s emerging startups come to showcase!
Technori was founded in 2010 by Seth Kravitz and a band of entrepreneurs on a mission to build the largest and most inclusive startup community in the world.
Before 1871Blue1647mHUBor that building full of unicorns known as Lightbank, there was Technori – a small community of techies focused on providing fellow founders with the resources, funding and connections required to successfully launch a company!
Since then, Technori has grown into Chicago’s leading startup platform with hundreds of alumni companies that have raised more than a billion dollars in venture capital.
