As awareness of recent venture homeruns has grown, there has been a surge in innovative venture activity. It’s no longer limited to Silicon Valley and Boston’s Route 128. Venture capital activity is flourishing in New York, Los Angeles, the DC metro area, Austin . . . and anywhere where creativity, ambition, and the funds to nurture it are found.
Venture incubators and supportive angels are emerging everywhere. Cleversafe is a great example. While people often talk about the Midwest’s conservatism and reliance on agriculture and heavy industry, Cleversafe’s billion dollar+ win was created in Chicago. In fact, Inc. recently reported that Chicago (which is where our funds are based) is now second behind only New York City in the number of fast growing private companies on the Inc. 5000.
