Nestled deep on the 3rd floor of 73 S. Riverside Dr. in downtown Elgin is a tech hub little know about in the Northwest Suburbs. The Elgin Technology Center is a co-working space for entrepreneurs come to launch, grow and evolve their business. The Elgin Tech Center, or ETC, is not new to the area. Before re-locating to 73 S. Riverside Dr, the ETC was housed in the inconic Elgin Tower on the 2nd floor. Historically, the ETC was started as a place where tech businesses would be drawn to Elgin.

Elgin has a history of innovation. The Elgin National Watch Company was located in downtown Elgin where the current Butera market is located. The company was first incorporated in August 1864 as the National Watch Company, in Chicago, Illinois. The company produced many of the self-winding wristwatch movements made in the United States beginning with the 607 and 618 calibers (which were bumper wind) and the calibers 760 and 761 (30 and 27 jewels respectively).

The Elgin Technology Center also housed the cities state robotics champs Got Robot? They are the three time Illinois FTC Champions (2012-2013, 2013-2014, 2014-2015) and one of four 2015 World Championship Inspire Award Finalists.

The Elgin Technology Center offers different pricing for different levels of membership. Their packages range from regular monthly memberships to available private office spaces. The center has 27/7 access with coffee, kitchen, projector, whiteboards and conference room amenities. When small businesses are needing to get out of the home office, basement or coffee shop, the ETC provides desks with a quite place to work along with a community of other start up businesses that collaborate to help each other grow. There is accessable parking nearby and its walking distance from public transportation.

Severity Design has utilized the resources that the Elgin Technology Center has to offer for the past 4 years. We have our office space located here and often will meet our clients for consultations or networking opportunities. We also have enjoyed building our network of clients through the connections we have made being a part of the ETC. We look forward to helping other business get started online in the future.
