We all know Chicago has a strong venture ecosystem. But one of the common narratives told by founders is that "It's hard to raise early stage...they want to see traction first."
Landon Campbell, investor at Drive Capital, hates that narrative and will not sleep until Chicago becomes THE capital for raising pre-seed money.
Join us at Drive's brand new Chicago office on August 24th for a fireside chat with Landon. We'll talk about:
- Why it's so hard to raise at early stage in Chicago
- What needs to happen to get more early stage dealflow
- How Chicago can be the home of DECAcorns
- How Drive Capital invests in startups at pre-seed
