  24. 24. Chicago Weaknesses Conservative investors—high “proof” point Later stage investors—hard to get seed capital Model-driven investors—need solid economics A bias to local industries—heavy B2B focus Not well-known on the national stage Geographic location “an island” vs. coasts A shortage of tech talent Need big & small companies to collaborate better Cheaper to launch means a lot more clutter
