Collaboration Centers

Set in downtown Chicago, the TechNexus Venture Collaboration Center is our physical ecosystem hub and lab. We work with experienced innovators who contribute real value each day. We don’t just host, but actively engage with our tech and innovation community.

Partner Network

Hundreds of ecosystem partners are our feet on the ground in every community across the globe. These incubators, accelerators, universities and investment groups are critical components to offering world-class opportunities for our enterprises and entrepreneurs.


A core group of 50+ seasoned executives provide insight, ideas and intuition as they build and innovate. Hundreds of others stand ready when their specific skills are needed for key advisory opportunities.


Co-Labs bring the entirety of players - enterprises, ventures, capital, government and more – together to share and work collaboratively to tackle the future of industry growth.

Our Ecosystems

  • Building networks is hard, but we believe it’s critical to the success of our collaborators.

    We’ve spent years working with partners to curate an ecosystem of organizations, catalysts and innovators and we put it to practice from the start by building our own facility in Chicago with startups and 100s of larger growth-stage companies. Our networks are curated, heterogenous, and above all else, trusted relationships that bring value to ventures and enterprises.

  • Better (and Faster) Together

    Our curated global network collaborates to fuel innovation for everyone involved. Your efforts are multiplied by the power in numbers.
