What is The Fringe Network?
The Fringe Network empowers professional women in McHenry County and beyond to network, grow, and showcase their talent through a digital and in-person community of supporters, partners, and connectors.
Our mission is to identify, support, and grow rockstar female talent in the collar counties of Chicago, starting with McHenry County.
With more and more urbanites leaving city to settle in the suburbs and collar counties of Chicago, there is a need for greater technology driven resources, similar to what are offered in the city. While Cook County is experiencing a recognizable drop in population, collar counties like McHenry County, Kane County, Kendall County, and Will County are actually seeing an increase in population.
Great populations and economic development in these counties call for greater resources for professional growth. The Fringe Network aims to create a digitally connected network where women from all professional industries and experience levels can support and push each other forward.
The Fringe Network is bringing Chicago-level networking and development to McHenry County and beyond.
