FUND put us on the map.

“Our biggest takeaway from the Chicago FUND Conference … was the market validation from an entirely new startup ecosystem that our business is solving a real problem. 

Thanks to all the founders, investors, and community members for welcoming us into your city and showing love. We’ll be back soon!”

About FUND Exhibit

To get your business in the spotlight at FUND, you’ll need to apply to exhibit so that we can understand if first, you’re ready to present, and two, if your time and efforts will be effective at FUND.
