Chicago, IL, July 23, 2019–When it comes to small businesses there is no one formula for success. The Look Chicago and Ignite Innovation and Technology have partnered to merge their existing programs, to support small businesses. These programs will offer a variety of services to entrepreneurs and small businesses. The partnership will focus on a few components: quality customized small business services, increased business exposure and expanded networks to wider markets.

Ignite will bring its existing Launch 100 business incubator program, whose objective is to work with business owners to prospective entrepreneurs on establishing and executing a solid game plan on how to build, grow and expand their business. Launch 100 offers 5 key elements to launch early stage businesses: Coworking space, Mentoring and workshops, Access to capital, Technology Solutions, Business resources and Health benefits. The Look Chicago will bring its LOOKprenuer project that provides entrepreneurs with Media Training, Business to Business Networking, Teen Entrepreneurial workshops, as well as offer Media exposure via Television, Radio and Print. Ignite’s Blue Lacuna Coworking Space will be the location for these projects as well as a new production entitled “Live with The Look” set to launch later this Summer.
