Goodcity exists to mobilize investments toward individuals working to solve complex problems in the City of Chicago. In September of 2016, Goodcity launched INVEST Chicago. The focus of INVEST Chicago is to come alongside grassroots, nonprofit organizations and community for-profit startups, founded and managed by minority and female leadership in Chicago’s most economically isolated communities.
Support the work of Goodcity and our city's social entrepreneurs by going Over The Edge on July 21st-23rd. Not only will you have the thrilling opportunity to rappel down 35 stories of the Hyatt Regency, but you'll have the exciting chance to impact our city in a positive way, one bold leap at a time. As you do so, be sure to take in the city at its finest -- the extraordinary skyline, the people, and the heart. It's why we are proud to call Chicago our home.
You can participate by yourself, by building a team with colleagues and friends, or by joining one of our investee's teams. Together, you'll dive deeper into the many ways businesses are making a positive impact in this world. Special awards will go to those who raise the most money, teams who have the most rappellers, and groups who accomplish the feat in the best costumes.
This INVEST Chicago initiative allows individuals to make a difference. All individuals and teams will be raising money for the capacity-building of entrepreneurs supported by this initiative.
