Today Level39 welcomed a delegation of experts from Chicago, who took some time to share their expertise with our resident tech companies.
The team of mentors were Howard Tullman of 1871 , Phil Nevels of ChicagoNEXT , Julie Menacho of CME Group and David Weinstein of Freshwater Advisors . This extremely knowledgable group took time out of their diary to meet with some of our members, before inviting our community to have lunch with them.
The day began with Claire Cockerton, Deputy Head of Level39, welcoming the group and introducing them to what we do here. Howard reciprocated with some facts and figures about 1871 – the Chicago-based accelerator space of which he is CEO – and a tour of L39 followed. Our kinetic art collection drew quite a lot of interest.
It’s certainly worth looking out for further collaboration between Level39 and 1871 in the future, and there’s some more pics on FB.
