Build the Right Connections
Set in downtown Chicago, the TechNexus Venture Collaboration Center is our physical ecosystem hub and lab. We work with experienced innovators who contribute real value each day. We don’t just host, but actively engage with our tech and innovation community.
Hundreds of ecosystem partners are our feet on the ground in every community across the globe. These incubators, accelerators, universities and investment groups are critical components to offering world-class opportunities for our enterprises and entrepreneurs.
A core group of 50+ seasoned executives provide insight, ideas and intuition as they build and innovate. Hundreds of others stand ready when their specific skills are needed for key advisory opportunities.
Co-Labs bring the entirety of players - enterprises, ventures, capital, government and more – together to share and work collaboratively to tackle the future of industry growth.
Building networks is hard, but we believe it’s critical to the success of our collaborators.
We’ve spent years working with partners to curate an ecosystem of organizations, catalysts and innovators and we put it to practice from the start by building our own facility in Chicago with startups and 100s of larger growth-stage companies. Our networks are curated, heterogenous, and above all else, trusted relationships that bring value to ventures and enterprises.

Increasing productivity, real-time communication and safety for first responders and cities.
First responders enter danger zones – a burning building or a city hit by a natural disaster – every day. To better protect them, cities are leveraging data and analytics, sensors, IoT, rugged mobile devices and other technology advancements for next generation public safety, security and smart cities.
Defining the future of how people and products move.
From aviation to rail, trucking, and logistics, the transportation industry is ripe for disruption. To improve operational efficiency and increase revenues, industry leading companies are looking to AI, data and analytics, AR, additive manufacturing, robotics and connectivity among other innovative technologies.
Driving operational efficiency to monitor and connect machinery and improve worker safety and productivity.
Industrial companies aren’t only up against their age-old competitors, but also transformation from data, internet and cloud companies as well. Staying agile, informed and open requires an entrepreneurial perspective for many traditional heavy industry players.
Seamlessly connecting products and solutions through integrated IoT.
The increasing adoption of a connected life demands a cohesive IoT ecosystem that adapts to the environment around it - beyond just one disparate thermostat to include sound systems, mobile devices, cars and home and office infrastructure. From leisure to personal productivity, consumers demand a seamless experience in all aspects of their lives, leading to a healthier, happier and more convenient lifestyle.
Solving the most challenging ecommerce problems in data and analytics, cloud computing, mobile, AI, AR and more.
One of the most quickly evolving industries is retail - from both a B2C and B2B perspective. Creating efficiencies in inventory management and supply chain logistics, leveraging data and analytics to offer personalized customer experiences, developing secure payments processes, and endless other technology demands on the retail industry require these companies to constantly look for leading-edge technology solutions.
