Welcome to 1921 Coworking and Incubator.

1921 is designed to be a self-contained tech and manufacturing hub with more than 12,000 sq.ft. of awesome coworking space, private offices, soundproof booths for calls/zoom meetings, a beautiful backyard patio for outdoor meetings and much more. 

With an emphasis on helping minority and women startups that have been accepted into our program go from startup to launch, we provide business mentors, investors, access to talent, resources, networks, and a lot more to add to the launch experience.

1921 will also be a tech-learning hub for the community helping individuals earn various IT certifications, introducing young people to technology, and all other facets of tech growth.

1921 Coworking and Incubator CEO/Founder James "jp" Parker featured on WGN's DayTime Chicago Show discussing the 1921 Business Model that will launch minority and women-owned startups in low-income and emerging communities.

Did you know that January is National Poverty Awareness Month? At 1921, we recognize that one of the ways to end poverty is to bring high-paying jobs to communities where poverty is at it highest. As we prepare to launch the very first startup from the Southside of Chicago, you can support our efforts by getting your "This Hoodie or Tshirt Helps Create Tech Jobs in the Community" for yourself, child, friend, or family member.  Sales from the Hoodies & Tshirts helps 1921 train individuals from the community to work in tech with free certifications.
