Spreading like a wildfire…


It started like many things do, an idea, a dream, a hope. Then things spread, the box is opened and the ideas fly free. And so begins the story and beginnings of Appsterdam Chicago. It all began in 2011 at the Appsterdam Mobile Party during “ICE Amsterdam” where the name Appsterdam stuck like glue. Since then “Embassies” locations where app developers and innovators alike have established bases of sorts to proliferate the ideals of the app industry, from Greece to San Francisco, Manila and Chicago, Appsterdammers as hey are now called are getting together where the proverbial rubber hits the road. August 2012 Randy Ellis had a vision and teamed up with Appsterdam to begin work on establishing the Chicago Embassy, Which brings us to this site and the rest is yet to be written.

Appsterdam Chicago is looking for people who have ideas, who have experience, those who have ideas and experience. Anyone with any interest in any area of the app industry. Marketing, graphic design, useability, legal, coding, if you can do it then Appsterdam Chicago is the place for you.

We are currently looking for volunteers to help make Appsterdam Chicago great. If you are interested in knowing more or would like to volunteer please check out the links below:
