Xchange Chicago

The ever-expanding tech economy has brought meaningful work and increased prosperity to many in Chicago, yet large portions of neighborhoods remain disconnected from these benefits. In response, the Comer Foundation, P33, and SDI Presence have collaborated to create a sustainable and equitable model that fosters economic and social change, especially for historically underrepresented individuals and communities. Their initiative, Xchange, aims to bridge this gap by ensuring the positive impacts of the tech economy reach all corners of Chicago.

Chicagoland corporations spend $40 billion annually on technology projects and IT services, with most of this spending leaving the local economy. Consequently, Chicago’s technology ecosystem provides training and jobs to only a select few, neglecting diverse and vulnerable communities. Xchange aims to redirect these dollars back into the local economy by integrating workforce development with neighborhood revitalization. By partnering with quality MBE IT suppliers, Xchange helps companies in-source IT spending, using these contracts to train apprentices and create jobs that benefit local communities. Join Xchange to help build an equitable, vibrant, and inclusive economy for all.
