A Milestone for Innovation

Today’s a great day for innovation in Illinois.

With the help of Governor Quinn, today we announced our plans to create 420 new jobs in Chicago by the end of 2016 as well as the expansion to our new regional office headquarters.

Our tremendous growth and impact in Illinois would not be possible without the help of the many savvy policymakers who support innovation. The cities and residents of Illinois thank you all.

We’re proud, and amazed, that we’ve already outgrown our current regional office in just three short months. In 2015, we’re moving to our new space that features 56,000 square feet and a few awesome tech neighbors.

Uber’s rapid job creation and expansion symbolize the positive impact that is possible when policy makers embrace innovation in their cities and states. Today is a milestone, but there’s still work to do. We will continue to push forward with our plans to create hundreds of jobs in Illinois and collaborate with policymakers around the state.

Thank you to Governor Quinn, our partners and our supporters.

Much love,
Uber Chicago
