Attention: You are now leaving the Wintrust website.




Wintrust Ventures focuses on the unique needs of start-ups. 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, as a start-up, 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 start-ups can flourish. No two businesses have the same set of needs or goals, but with a group focused specifically on start-ups, we’re prepared to tackle the unique circumstances new companies face.
