STARTUP

Founder's Experience

"Meeting one-on-one with a VC that was already interested in our business allowed us to take a deep dive about our business faster, as opposed to trying to 'convince' them to have initial interest."

SPONSORS AND DONORS

Thank you all SO much for the incredible event this week. I met some truly phenomenal founders and had the opportunity to explore Chicago and meet some of our portfolio companies IRL. It was a treat for me to be a part of this experience and I hope to return in the future and participate again.
