TINC Magazine, an acronym for Technology Industry News – Chicago, is a blog/magazine hybrid about Chicago’s technology industry. We cover topics that range from tech-hobbyist scene (hackerspaces), to emerging startups, and sponsored content by service providers.

TINC is brought to you by the people who created Chicago Art Magazine – with Kathryn Born at the helm, and Robin Dluzen as Managing Editor and Heather Reitsma as Senior Editor and Researcher.


Software, Publishing and Integrated Marketing 

With TINC Magazine, we continue our tradition of being in the forefront of a new publishing model. We are ad-supported via integrated marketing in the form of “Sponsored Posts,” which allows advertisers to to provide  in-depth information (700 word articles) about their product and services. For more information about TINC’s marketing services see our services page.

We also offer “auto-data publishing”, which is a term we created for harvesting the data in our Chicago Startup Catalog and the publishish articles based on the trends and data discovered in the software.


Send us your news, tips, press releases and feedback. Being included in the database is free, but you must qualify. No service providers are included in the software.
