Ellie Davis

Manager, Venture Impact

I’ve always been fueled by social interaction and am an avid problem solver. I am a firm believer in the popular song lyric “We’re all in this together”, especially when it comes to approaching complex solutions. TechNexus’ unique Venture Collaborative model allows me to bring these attributes to life by driving strategic partnerships across our corporate partners and portfolio companies.

My goal as part of the Collaboration team is to help bring our venture success stories to the forefront of how we do business. I support key operational activities such as program management, venture onboarding, community resourcing and strategic implementation. 

Before joining TechNexus, I worked at JP Morgan Chase in various strategic process improvement and product development roles. I am a graduate from the University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management where I studied Business Economics and Finance. The Eller College is where I was introduced to entrepreneurship and where my curiosity into the industry blossomed.

Having been born and raised in Illinois, I am proud to be a part of Chicago’s growing venture community and tech ecosystem. I have a broad range of interests and hobbies including slalom skiing, snow skiing, dance, Broadway theater, car racing, cooking, and am passionate about celebrating all food holidays.
