A Midwest Growth Machine

FUND calls Chicago home and we’ve been connecting entrepreneurs, investors, and business leaders since 2015.  As we’ve grown, the  ecosystem here is also continuing to grow in a multitude of ways in tandem with us.

Investment Returns

Earlier this year, our friends at Pitchbook ranked Chicago as the No. 1 U.S. city for venture capital returns.

Innovative Growth

In a report released by KPMG in March 2018, Chicago tied with Boston for the second most innovative city in the nation. Between 2008 and 2018, according to The Center for an Urban Future, the number of upstarts in the Windy City has increased 270 percent.

Diversity

Zoe Henry from Inc.com reported in October of 2018 that roughly 3,000 startups are located in Chicago, with nearly 34 percent of those being run by women — the most of any major U.S. city.”
