Chicago Innovation Hub

Innovation requires both a method and a mindset. We work with our clients to blend art and science to produce breakthrough ideas.

Come co-create with us

Imagine a space where the impossible is behind you and the possible just ahead. Where you collaborate with world-leading problem solvers to co-create breakthrough innovations and experiences.

At Accenture’s Chicago Innovation Hub, one of our network of 11 hubs across North America, we offer that environment. By taking a human-centered approach to innovation, we work alongside our clients and partners to ignite transformational thinking, unlock new value, and fulfill human needs by using emerging technology.

Located in downtown Chicago, we combine an innovation center and a digital studio – uniting playful exploration and real-world application. With 500+ experts across disciplines, we live and breathe every stage of the innovation lifecycle, starting with purpose and ending with impact. But the in-between is where the magic happens.
