    The Co-op (Now Radical Creators)

    We've rebranded! Learn more about Radical Creators and apply to be a part of this group of emerging changemakers today.

    The Co-op is a group of highly motivated, community-driven individuals breaking down silos and sparking connections across Chicago. Aligned with Chicago Ideas' mission of nurturing great ideas and bolstering actionable initiatives, the Co-op is our distinctive community, our collection of great ambitions, profound ideas and stellar relationships.

    Chicago Ideas is saying goodbye to the old days of networking by designing unique experiences and conversations that lead to deeper, more meaningful dialogue and action within the city of Chicago. This is the new-age social chamber of commerce—where nonprofits meet tech junkies, artists meet business leaders and North Side meets South Side. Bottom line, this is a social ecosystem of deeply driven, boldly active individuals coming together to make things happen.

    Our Mission:

    To be a social chamber of commerce made up of motivated, diverse leaders designed to create a better connected, more activated Chicago.

    The Co-op is by application only. The application period for 2018 is open now through November 27. Apply now.
