In May 2020, During the pandemic, we opened Momentum Coffee and Coworking. You will know Momentum Coffee by our logo which includes the Power Symbol. It’s all about powering up, empowering others, and powering the community!

A little more about how we got started.

Ignite Technology and Innovation, 501c3, owns and operates Blue Lacuna Coworking Space in Pilsen and recently opened Momentum Coffee and Coworking as its newest coffee shop in South Loop, Chicago.

The Ignite Technology and Innovation mission is to create equitable wealth and shared prosperity in under-resourced communities. We develop affordable, accessible coworking spaces enriched with classes and programs. Our programs inspire, encourage, nurture, and grow the untapped ideas of underrepresented entrepreneurs by providing local access to technology, resources, mentorship, and strategic connections to potential partners and investors.

Momentum Coffee & Coworking is South Loop’s first affordable coffee & coworking Incubator opening to serve underrepresented entrepreneurs in Chicago. Momentum is an open-to-the-public café that doubles as a fully resourced coworking space to its members, focusing on coffee, coworking, community, and event space. We strive to be the best coffee and coworking space shop in the South Loop and one of the best coffee shops in Chicago.

Founder, Tracy G. Powell the President and Chairman of Ignite Technology and Innovation has over 30 years of experience in real estate development and investment in communities. Co-founder, Nikki Bravo serves as Executive Director bringing with her a combined 20 years of public sector and nonprofit management experience. Both are laser-focused on the economic empowerment of under-resourced communities.
