The Chicago Venture Summit invites investors from around the country to connect with Chicago’s top tech investors, entrepreneurs and startups.

The two-day, invitation-only event includes targeted matchmaking between investors and entrepreneurs, introductions to some of the region’s leading Fortune 500 companies, and the opportunity to experience the breadth and diversity of Chicago’s fast-growing startup scene.

The Summit will also highlight some of the recent major milestones of the Chicago tech scene:

  • Chicago continues to offer the best VC ROI than any other U.S. city (according to Pitchbook) and ranks within the top 10 largest VC ecosystems in the country.
  • Chicago startups raised over $1.8 billion in venture capital in 2018, building on continued momentum from the previous years.
  • Chicago's growing tech talent pool and innovation ecosystem continues to attract significant investment and expansions - most recently from Uber, Google, ServiceNow, Salesforce, and others (according to Forbes).
