ChiTribe Pitch from Co-Founder Rebecca Joey Schwab
Rebecca Schwab has participated in two Community Connect Entrepreneurial Fellowship Cohorts to learn to present and pitch about ChiTribe. Many have been wondering our mission, our pitch, do we have a calendar?
We are the rising tide that aims to raise all Jewish organizations engagement, participation, and visibility.
ChiTribe is the gateway to Jewish life in Chicago, not the gatekeepers.
ChiTribe Pitch: The OG
ChiTribe’s recent development and this presentation would not be possible without the support and resources from Community Connect. Community Connect’s focus is in the areas of vision, strategy, leadership development, marketing, fundraising, and event management, and this fellowship included seven amazing organizations all founded by women trying to make a difference.
Rebecca Joey Schwab has always secretly aspired to be Jewess influencer. After attending the University of Wisconsin-Madison, focusing on Jewish Studies, Hebrew Language and Semitic Studies, and Middle Eastern Studies, Rebecca decided to pursue a career in the Jewish world. After moving back to Chicago from Wisconsin, Rebecca found it more challenging to find community than she expected.As Co-Founder and Executive Director of ChiTribe, Rebecca is optimizing millenial and Gen Z connectivity in a changing environment throughout Chicago. ChiTribe is a product of best in class practices for Jewish engagement, online and off. In her free time, Rebecca teaches Hebrew, visit friends across the country, and loves to dance Israeli Zumba.
