In the coming decade, technologies such as telemedicine, advanced remote learning, virtual reality, augmented reality, the Internet of Things, automation, advanced robotics, drones, and many others will change almost every facet of our society - helping communities improve the lives of their residents.

Help bring next-generation technologies to Chicago by becoming a Chicago Tech Future community partner.

Our Mission

Chicago Tech Future is a Verizon-led community-focused initiative that is partnering with Chicagoans to educate the public on how technology will change lives. The new networks that Verizon and other wireless carriers are building will provide state-of-the-art broadband technologies that will touch every aspect of how people will live, work, and play.

Access to state-of-the-art broadband technologies can provide all of our communities with the ability to create products that we haven’t even dreamed of. These technologies will provide people with better access to healthcare, education, jobs, economic development, social activism and entertainment. It will also improve public safety and the environment, create smart homes, smart cars and smart cities and bring innovation that will empower citizens to act as change agents so communities can be the authors of their own stories.

Please join us in this movement so that we can put the future in the hands of the people.

Do what you can to pay it forward and support local businesses you love.
