Rise Interactive, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Quad and one of the top performance marketing agencies in the world, is partnering with 50,000feet and P33 to attract and retain top-tier tech talent back to Chicago.
This first-of-a-kind initiative, which is online, connects mid-career, cream-of-the-crop tech talent by providing visibility and access to high-caliber networking and lucrative job opportunities at Chicago’s most innovative startups and corporations.
“Chicago is uniquely positioned to serve as a global leader in technology and business innovation. With three of the nation’s top universities, a strong history of corporate tech investments, and a cost of living unmatched by other large U.S. metropolises, the city is an ideal home for young tech talent,” says Erin Amico, CMO of P33, a nonprofit focused on making Chicagoland one of the best places to work in tech. “The opportunity now is making sure that tech professionals across the country see the value in starting and building their careers here. Rise, our agency leading the charge on digital communications, is poised to exceed expectations in targeting and nurturing our audience.”
“Rise is eager to invest in the growth of Chicago’s tech community, especially as it relates to profiling Chicago as one of the most diversified and inclusive tech ecosystems in the country,” says Larry Fisher, CEO of Rise Interactive. “The remarkable vision of the leadership at P33, paired with the innovation I already see with teams at Rise, should make local leaders in business very excited for Chicago’s future.”
“Rarely do you get the opportunity to be a part of such an important initiative for the city in which your company was born. 50,000feet is honored to serve as a creative partner to help bring the best and brightest talent back to Chicago,” shared Braden Kline, Account Director at 50,000feet. “The resources, enthusiasm and collaboration by so many incredible institutions and startups in Chicago speak to our collective commitment—we’re very proud to be part of this important initiative.”
This significant investment in Chicago’s economic growth comes shortly after Rise’s 2020 announcements of rebranding and an expanded leadership team, signaling a launchpad for the company’s growth in 2021. https://gotechchicago.com
“Rise clients know we’re experts at leveraging digital to drive brand awareness, and we’re eager to make the Chicago tech economy our next client,” Fisher says. “We look forward to building on our history of success in a lasting way for this great city.”
