  • A start-up ecosystem has formed in Chicago as local start-ups raised $654 million in venture capital funding in 70 deals last year, a 40 percent increase from 2010. In addition, the number of collaborative work spaces and support programs to help start-ups in Chicago is growing.  The collaborative space will help create “an ecosystem of high-level, experienced entrepreneurs in Chicago,” according to Dan Salcedo of Mobcart Inc.
