Celebrating Chicago's extraordinary entrepreneurial and growth scaling community, this unforgettable event is centered around the presentation of seven awards to deserving leaders and companies that have made a significant impact on Chicago's tech ecosystem.

This year’s Momentum theme, FUSION, represents the boundless energy created by our founders, growth scale companies, and innovative enterprises and is embodied by the combination of 1871 and the Illinois Technology Association (ITA). We are excited to bring you an event sculpted from the combination of legacy CityLIGHTS and Momentum Awards, featuring the coming together of the tech community for a night of celebration, networking and recognizing the companies in the community that are serving as inspiration as they grow and excel. We will also celebrate the growth and ever-changing nature of Chicago's tech community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to pivot business operations, offerings and opportunities for staff.




We were thrilled to have over 200 nominations representing companies and individuals from all across Chicago and Illinois tech for this year's program!
