What is P33?  P33 was founded by Penny Pritzker, former Secretary of Commerce under President Obama, and Chris Gladwin, CEO and Co-founder of Cleversafe (sold to IBM for $1.3B), to reinvigorate Chicago’s tech community.  These powerhouses have drawn together over 150 of Chicago business leaders to work on what is needed to make Chicago a top-tier city for tech companies by 2033.
