Other budding communities include Wicker Park, West Loop, and Pilsen. » While educational institutions are entrepreneurially focused, they mostly exist in different parts of the city (e.g. Northwestern University in Evanston, IL)   » Most Chicago startups are being acquired by larger corporate firms in the city  » About ⅓ of startups are founded / run by women » 45% of Chicago's investments have a 10X ROI compared to 25% for the Bay.

  9. 9. Analysis Feedback from locals immersed in the ecosystem: » Many Midwest investors are considered “old money” that perpetuate a culture of more conservative investment risk tolerance » Local community has a lack of institutional support for experimentation (e.g. free cohorting spaces such as AWS Loft) » Local entrepreneurs while interested in entrepreneurship are less focused on high growth tech ventures » More capital exists than skilled talent with the experience and management training » Limited funding opportunities leading Seed and Series A investments and beyond between the pre-seed and growth phase Subject Matter Expert: Julie Martin, Dan Eidell, Samara Hernandez, 1871 RBL1.COM Insight from Local Subject Matter Experts Chicago, IL
  10. 10. The startup ecosystem in Chicago has been a source of innovation across industries with an increasingly strong presence in the Food and AdTech space among many others. Reviewing the profile of the metropolitan area, while the economy is diverse and large (3rd largest metropolitan market in the U.S.), it is ranked lower than other entrepreneurial ecosystems in terms of total startups and venture capital dollars deployed annually. The reason for this is a tight local connection, but a weaker link to the global scale. Many exits are with large corporations within the city, rather than well-broadcasted IPO’s or other acquisitions outside of Chicago: this indicates a strong link within the local community. For Chicago to continue expanding, it is imperative the city looks to scale. In other news, there is movement linked with major tech companies such as Google, Salesforce, Amazon, and Facebook which have been establishing operations in the city over the past 5-10 years. We believe this will result in more trained executives with capital leaving those institutions to start companies in the coming years.
