Chicago Executive Search


The Good Search has deep experience recruiting top leadership talent to clients in the Chicago area. And, the future looks bright. The University of Chicago is launching nation’s first quantum startup accelerator program in Chicago, positioning the Windy City on the cutting edge of molecular computing. Based at the university’s Booth School of Business, Duality plans to invest in up to 10 quantum startups per year by providing office and lab space, access to research facilities and $50,000 in unrestricted funds. If successful, the accelerator could be transformative for South Side of Chicago by turning it into the Silicon Valley of quantum technology.

Already, Chicago has a well-established technology scene.  Google opened a small sales office 2 decades ago and has since expanded to 1,000 workers. Facebook, LinkedIn, Uber, and Microsoft have Chicago offices as well, as Chicago’s Groupon’s three co-founders invest in startups.
