Chicago Ventures
Credit Fintech Payments

Business Overview

CV invests in seed stage tech startups.

The founders we invest in are building innovative technology companies in geographic regions where there’s historically been a lack of seed capital: places like Chicago, Austin, Madison and Denver. These founders are tackling large or broken markets, or uncovering new ones.
