Announcing the Windy City Venture Crawl + Afterparty!
Welcome back to the GENESIS newsletter👋 After a refreshing holiday season we’re ready to start this year at a sprint with two major event announcements!
Also: we apologize for the the radio silence the past few weeks. We’ve decided to send out newsletters primarily for announcements at a less regular cadence. Both Andrew and I put our startups before anything else and we realized we simply didn’t have the bandwidth to give a content-driven newsletter the attention it deserves.
Now, let’s see what’s coming up…
🍺 The Windy City Venture Crawl 1/26 9am-5pm
This is not your average networking event.
The Windy City Venture Crawl (WCVC) is like a bar crawl, but instead of bars, it’s VC offices in Chicago.
This major startup/entrepreneurship event is all about bringing together early stage founders from across the Midwest with investors in Chicago. What’s even better, we’ll be in their offices…
We’ll have pitches at each of the three participating offices along with light food & drinks. We’re closing the night off with a major afterparty, described below.
P.S. this would not be possible without our sponsors: JP Morgan, BKS Partners, Neal, Gerber & Eisenberg, and JLL.
🔥 The WCVC Afterparty 1/26 8pm
And this is not your regular boring happy hour afterparty…
an immersive venue (The Lighthouse Artspace Chicago)
three hip hop performances by local GenZ artists
a fire dancer
local brands started by GenZ entrepreneurs
300+ genZ founders, artists, and changemakers
Trust me, this will be the greatest thing happening that night in Chicago in January.
You can get your tickets here. We have early bird pricing until January 13th or until they sell out.
🌴 GenZ founders retreat to Costa Rica February 2024
70 degree weather… a villa right on the beach… yoga classes… surfing in between meetings… a time to relax and cowork with other young ambitious founders….
If that doesn’t sound nice - you should probably rethink some things.
If that does sound nice - you can apply to join right here.
We’re also hosting a set of private dinners for founders, investors, and executives throughout 2024. If you’d like to join one, please drop a reply to this email.
Thanks for reading this edition of the newsletter. See you at the Windy City Venture Crawl🙏
