Cultivating Business Agility in the “City in a Garden”

Chicago’s official city motto, urbs in horto means “city in a garden,” which refers to the city’s impressive system of parks, beaches, and forest preserves. After rising from the ashes of the Great Fire, Chicagoans have ensured that growth as an economic powerhouse would be cultivated alongside beauty and nature.

Organic innovation and startups alongside elite global corporations is the natural byproduct of a city that prioritized beauty and nature alongside infrastructure and architecture.

Agile Rising supports this dual framework with consulting, coaching, classes, and meetup groups.
