Our Guiding Principles

Entrepreneurs​

We celebrate and surround ourselves with entrepreneurs, the fearless that shake up the status quo, take risks, and ask, “what if?”. Intelligent and curious people, problem solvers who dive into the deep end and figure things out on their way up. Like bold engineers adapting technology in new ways and lifelong entrepreneurs who set out to reinvent an entire industry.

Impactful Execution​

We are force multipliers–for corporations, ventures, and investors. Ideas without execution are just hallucinations, so we partner with and support creators who are imbibed with attitudes toward action. Those who take action based on a need, an underserved market, and intuition – not a “how-to” guide – to make a sustainable impact.

Perspective

We value diverse perspectives and know that bringing together people with different experiences, backgrounds, and ideas is crucial to driving innovation. Without appreciating other points of view, you’ll never see, let alone understand, the full picture. A thriving ecosystem is enriched by diversity and inclusivity. And within our own team, each person brings a discrete perspective to our work and contributes to our carefully crafted culture of acceptance and inclusion. Our excellence as individuals brought us together, but it is our ability to embrace the intersectionality of our differences that allows us to push far beyond what any single team member is capable of alone. Read more about our commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Community

At our core, we’re collaborators. We know the collective experience is greater than the sum of the parts. We value the power and possibility that lives within a global ecosystem. A community unbound by four walls or a postal code, but one that is widespread and far-reaching. Helping build Chicago’s now thriving tech community and the next generation of entrepreneurs, we consistently support and advocate for collaborative approaches to solve problems, highlight opportunities, and spark innovation. We partner with corporations who understand their future lies in their own ecosystems.
