ParadigmNEXT Involvement in Chicago Tech/Start-Up Community


Glenview, IL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/29/2014 -- With their recent expansion from their North Shore headquarters into downtown Chicago, ParadigmNEXT has established themselves as supporters, leaders and partners within the Chicago tech, start-up and small business community.

Launched in April, ParadigmNEXT has hosted a string of after-work networking events, all in their shared office space on the last Wednesday of every month. The after-work events are typically co-hosted with a business, association, or networking community. To name just a few, the renowned Ms. Tech ( and the Polish American Chamber of Commerce (PACC) ( have hosted events with ParadigmNEXT. All networking events are open to the public and free of charge. The events, along with the ParadigmNEXT offices, are located at Industrious, on 320 W. Ohio St in the River North area of downtown Chicago.

ParadigmNEXT seeks co-hosts with meaningful and appropriate purposes in the world of digital marketing and business communications. Co-founder of ParadigmNEXT, Yana Nirshberg, is a major supporter of women-owned organizations as well as culturally diverse associations. The events with Ms. Tech and the PACC have been part of her goal in creating a supportive and collaborative network of Chicago-based businesses, giving people another way of meeting each other.

“To quote one of my fav Ted speakers ‘We are not self-made. We are dependent on one another. Admitting this to ourselves isn't an embrace of mediocrity and derivativeness, it's a liberation from our misconceptions.’ I was always a strong believer in the power of collaboration and community-building, so positioning ParadigmNEXT as the HUB for tech and media resources in our community is just a natural progression for me and my team,” states Nirshberg. “Helping our local community and groups provide a better service to their constituents, customers, and members is what it’s all about!”

Ms.Tech in particular brings hundreds of women together in a forum of collaboration. The group boasts some of the most talented women in tech, digital media and technology related fields, hosting events from educational lunches and workshops to fun after-work cocktail hours. The Polish American Chamber of Commerce (PACC) is a not-for-profit organization incorporated in the State of Illinois as a business association. As the voice of Polish American business men and women in the Chicagoland metropolitan area, the Chamber’s goal is to serve their best interests and help influence decisions and actions, which improve their economic vitality.

The next after-work event is on Wednesday, July 30th at 5:30pm at Industrious with Jackson Corporate Law Offices ( as the co-host. Attendees are encouraged to e-mail Katrine Grace, ParadigmNEXT’s Business Developer at

ParadigmNEXT is also premiering as a featured guest blogger for several tech-related, start-up and small business institutions, such as the Small Business Advocacy Council (, the Digital Professional Institute ( and launching in August, the StartUp Institute ( ParadigmNEXT will provide relevant content for all institutions, from professional advice to digital marketing news and industry best practices.
