What is 1921 and the Stakeholder Opportunity

Who We Are:

1921 Coworking & Incubator, or 1921 for short, is the first Tech and Manufacturing Incubator to open on the far Southside of Chicago that will launch Black and Brown Startups in the community. 

When we launch Tech Startups in low-income communities, we are able to create high-paying jobs in the community. Our goal is to move low-income communities forward in 1-2 years instead of decades.

1921 has been featured in numerous TV, Radio, and Digital Print. Here's just a few:

What is the 1921 Stakeholder Opportunity?

If you've seen the TV show Shark Tank, then you know that the "Sharks" are always negotiating the amount of "Equity" ownership they want in a startup's company. Meaning, they will put up a certain amount of money for a certain amount of ownership in a startup so that they can receive yearly dividends and share in the profits of the startup.

1921 is the first Tech and Manufacturing Incubator to allow the everyday individual to invest and gain "Equity" in tech startups before they launch or go public. This means that as a company launches, grows, and hopefully becomes profitable, our investors are able to share in the profits as well.

In honor of our Educators, we are setting aside (100) 1921 Stakeholder Spots just for Educators because as Educators, you deserve the opportunity to create Generational Wealth since you literally teach every generation.

Can I own more than one Stakeholder spot?

Yes. Many Investors secure spots for their children or family. The max amount is (6).

Can I invest at different levels or only one level?

Yes. For example, "you" may want to invest at the 2% group level and invest at the 1% level for your child(ren) or niece/nephew or other family members.

Can I invest more in the future?
