About Tech.co

The Tech.co Team sitting together at Tech.co HQ

At Tech.co, we believe that getting the right tech matters.

It matters when you're spending your hard-earned money on a product that should work for your needs, and last for years. It matters when you have a limited budget and big growth targets to hit. The right tech can be the difference between understanding your customers and reaching more of them, or losing them altogether.

We understand the challenges your business faces, and aim to demystify the process of choosing the right tech solutions, with simple, easy-to-understand reviews and clear advice guides.

The right tech can help you find new and more efficient ways of running your operation, retain and attract loyal customers, protect your assets from security risks, or even add entirely new revenue streams.

Our recommendations are completely independent, based on in-depth research and always jargon-free.

In addition to our advice to help guide your purchasing decisions, we believe in helping you understand the wider complexities of our tech-dominated world, so you can navigate the ever-changing expectations of your team and customers, from remote management to the metaverse. Check out our regular news updates to make sense of the big issues of the day.

History of Tech.co

Tech.co started out as a simple community-building Tech Cocktail event, and has transformed into a fully-fledged media company with millions of readers around the world.

The company was co-founded in 2006 by former Tribune and AOL product strategist, long-time tech blogger, and new media pioneer Frank Gruber and early Feedburner employee Eric Olson as a way to better amplify the local Chicago tech startup scene. In 2010, Frank joined forces with Jen Consalvo, a former director at AOL, to scale the company into a powerhouse for tech events and media.

Over the years, Tech.co has hosted hundreds of community events, created programs designed to help elevate and educate startups, and worked with dozens of Fortune 500 clients, guiding them with strategies, events, content, and programs to connect them with tech savvy audiences and startups.

In December 2017, Tech.co was acquired by MVF, a global business that owns a number of leading digital publications and resource guides.

In 2022, we aim to translate our passion for tech into insightful news and analysis, helpful buyers’ guides and practical resources, so you can grow your business, work smarter and secure your success, now and in the future.

If you enter into a contract with a provider, we may receive a payment for the introduction. This helps Tech.co to provide free advice and reviews. It carries no additional cost to you, and will never affect our editorial independence.

Some of the links in our consumer or business pages will take you directly to a provider’s website, where you may find deals and discounts, or the option to purchase a product. If you do make a purchase at this stage, we may receive a referral payment from the retailer. Again, this has no additional cost to you, and doesn't affect the editorial independence of our reviews.
