Wintrust Ventures

Wintrust Ventures focuses on the unique needs of early stage companies. The group is positioned to provide guidance, networking opportunities, knowledge, financing, wealth management tools and, in some instances, investment, to support Chicago’s innovation community. Wintrust formed the group because we know how to get a business up and running in this area.

Wintrust Ventures provides a way to share that knowledge and offers the support and resources new businesses need. But, it’s also ready to provide an environment where local business owners can flourish. No two businesses have the same set of needs or goals, but with a group focused specifically on early stage companies, we’re prepared to tackle the unique circumstances new companies face.
