Urban Match Incorporated (UMI) is the first matchmaking service that targets the ethnic community in the Chicagoland area and Northwest Indiana. UMI is committed to helping busy urban men and women who are serious about finding partners.
Talawn Unger Jackson, Founder, was inspired by a matchmaker from New York that was a guest on the Oprah show. Impressed with her style; how she handled her business; and her overall business sense, Talawn decided to look into similar services in the Chicagoland area. After much research, she discovered that there wasn’t one. She then combined her human resources expertise with her matchmaking knowledge to create UMI, which officially launched on July 31, 2009.
