Mayor Emanuel Welcomed iam Bank and project44
In April, Chicago’s tech scene added 500 jobs from iam Bank and project44.
As an Irish entrepreneur with more than 20 years of fintech experience, Lee Travers founded iam Bank to go beyond the traditional banking system and give customers the tools they need to improve their finances.
Also this month, Mayor Rahm Emanuel joined project44 to announce plans to add 200 jobs in Chicago. A global logistics technology company, project44 is moving to a new 40,000 sq. ft. space in the iconic Merchandise Mart. This follows the company’s recent news that it secured $35 million to improve supply chain visibility and deliver a faster, more reliable global shipping experience.
“More companies from across the country and around the world are growing and investing in Chicago because they recognize the unparalleled strengths of our great city,” said Mayor Rahm Emanuel. “Chicago’s diversified economy and global connectivity is ideal for companies driving real innovations in logistics and technology.”
With the largest state-side engineering team of any logistics software as a service (SaaS) company, project44 is committed to cultivating Chicago’s global leadership in technology and innovation. They plan on hiring 100 new employees within the next 12-months, and 200 by November of 2019.
