Non-profit coworking space dedicated to Chicago's hardware focused entrepreneurs.
We are designers, engineers, hackers, makers, movers and shakers. We love to build. We revel in invention and thrive on the buzz of collaboration. Unfortunately, working independently raises several challenges that inhibit us on our path to success. We need access to gear, wells of inspiration, and resources to take our prototypes to production. Most importantly, we need a place to call home. Catalyze is our answer. Our West Loop studio is the first of its kind in the city. We provide shared office and workspace, access to tools, and the broad expertise of a uniquely talented community. As a nonprofit entity and users of our own space, we are committed to 100% reinvestment to provide our members the best possible resources we can. If you are in Chicago and need a place to prototype, look no further! We’d be happy to have you join our community.
