What is the Business Builder Program?

The purpose of Chicago Scene business builder program is designed to take full advantage of the many opportunities to develop and execute events and develop new lines of business under the Chicago Scene structure.

All companies are limited with respect to the number of opportunities that they can engage and these limits are based on the number of employees they have and financial resources on hand. These limits keep companies from growing at faster rates.

The “Business Builder” program allows entrepreneurially minded contractors to aid Chicago Scene to grow while creating longer term jobs for themselves and generating revenue streams necessary to develop new lines of business for all involved.

In this way Chicago Scene creates a business development platform by which event, marketing, promotion and media professionals may leverage all of the assets and market position of Chicago Scene as well as the operational aspects like insurance, and licensing.

Chicago Scene Content Contributor Program

Chicago Scene, both in the online format and in the form of the printed magazine has been most successful due to the intimately connected nature of our publications and events with the amazing city of Chicago that we cover. This is because the content generated is derived from direct interaction and intermingling with the people and venues of downtown Chicago. To further extend this intimate nature, we seek contributors who will maintain and extend the reach of our tendrils into the dynamic city of Chicago. Accordingly, we have formed the Chicago Scene Contributor Program.

This program addresses the many types of potential contributors to Chicago Scene and the nature of the relationship between Chicago Scene as an organization and the individual who aids us in strengthening our bond with the city and to tell it’s stories in the nature that only we have done for the last 16 years since our founding in 1998 by Ted Widen.
