Midventures25 is Open for Registration

midVentures25 is the first Chicago-based startup demo day & conference: 25 of the best investor-ready early-stage startups will demo their products in an open-floor expo. On March 11, we have over 20,000 square feet of demo space, where you can meet each startup team at their table.


The top 5 startups will have a chance to pitch to an audience of entrepreneurs, VCs, angels, bloggers, media and Chicago’s tech community. A panel of expert advisors will ask the tough questions — ultimately choosing one company to win over $7,500 in services.
