Indira Gallo

Director, Finances

As a first-generation immigrant, I’m passionate about investments and democratizing access to private markets. I love working with inspiring startup founders, building next-generation companies, and focusing on impact investments, particularly in climate and technology. These passions have drawn me to TechNexus, where I’m thrilled to work and learn alongside some of Chicago’s brightest leaders and be challenged to think differently.As the Director of Finance at TechNexus, I oversee the financial health of the organization. My role involves fostering robust financial controls, analyzing financial data to support executive decision-making, and championing sustainable growth through innovative investments. I collaborate closely with external partners and founders to drive strategic financial planning and investment initiatives.

Prior to joining TechNexus, I worked across multiple industries, including real estate, finance, and technology. Most recently, I co-founded New Leaf Ventures, a venture fund focused on early-stage startups where I led due diligence, strategy, and business development. Before that, I spent six years at Ganesh Investments, managing assets for several Pritzker Family Foundations and certain assets of Gigi Pritzker Pucker/Michael Pucker (DNS Capital), Penny Pritzker (PSP Partners), and Tom Pritzker (The Pritzker Organization). I completed my MBA at the Kellstadt Graduate School of Business at DePaul University.

While it wasn’t love at first sight, Chicago won me over with its outstanding hospitality and warm people—though I still enjoy ketchup on my hotdog. I live on the north side of the city with my husband, daughter, and two cats. Outside of work, I love hosting impromptu dinners for family and friends or catching a flight to explore a new destination.
