About This Event
This event is part of General Assembly’s Midwest Startup Week. After registering for this event, check out some of our other events happening later this week!
Join us for a panel discussion with the Midwest’s leading companies, incubators, founders and venture capital firms to get an exclusive inside look into the startup culture that’s continuing to grow in the region.
Why it Matters?
With venture investment growing year over year, the country’s highest average exit valuations, access to some of the country’s top universities, several unicorns under its belt, and the presence of a multitude of Fortune 500 companies – the Midwest has cemented its status as a healthy ecosystem for founders to launch and grow their ventures. This has opened up countless opportunities for jobs and career development, but breaking in is not always easy.
