Welcome to the Chicago Southsider!
If this is your first time reading our content, this is a good chance to get to know us and learn how you can get involved. Community development is a team sport, and we know that none of our goals will be possible without you.
The Chicago Southsider was launched in August 2021 to fill a gap in local news coverage.
We are flipping the script and going behind the scenes to unlock the best of Chicago's South Side one block at a time.
Our team (it's just me right now) is on the hunt for grand openings, entrepreneurship stories, special events, funding opportunities, and everything in between that allows us to showcase the good in our neighborhood.
As we expand (we need you!), we will be able to provide more coverage and produce events designed to help you make the most of the opportunities available on the South Side of Chicago.

Our main goal is to inform you about what's going on in the community. But it's a two way street. We want you to inform us about the great things happening as well. Whether it's sharing your success story or letting us know about upcoming grand openings or special events, we want to make sure that our community events and entrepreneurs are getting the attention they deserve.
Then, we want to educate. If you're wondering how anyone of our community leaders have launched a business or achieved certain goals, we plan to provide you with the inside scoop through premium content, events, and workshops.
Remember, anything is possible! Sometimes you just have to connect with someone else that has done it to know that it's possible for you too. This is the reason why we are showcasing the best of Chicago's South Side.
