Our Mission is about building your social capital
You can't advance your career as far as it can go, by simply showing up to work. Networking is essential to any plan of attack, and there is no better place for professional business networking in Chicago, than Linked 'N Chicago. We are changing the way people in Chicago meet other professionals, and there is much that we can do for you as well. We know we can, because we have done it for so many others. We have cultivated a group of like-minded men and women who come together to benefit each other mutually, while also enjoying each others’ company in a relaxed social setting. It is the ideal way to get ahead.
Whether you own a small business or work for a large corporation, we provide you with opportunities that could be crucial for your professional life. Getting face to face with others who are looking to learn and advance in their professional life and meet other professionals in the industry is an invaluable tool for success.

Program Leader - Energy Efficiency Division- "Linked ‘N Chicago is the single most supportive group I have been involved with.
