ABOUT US

 

Midway Ventures is a student-run venture capital and startup consulting group based out of the University of Chicago. We share a passion for entrepreneurship, venture capital, and technology. Some of us are founders ourselves.

 

We love working on compelling ideas with dedicated teams. 

 

 

FOR STUDENTS

 

We’re a tightly-knit group from different corners of the globe, and our interests are just as diverse. When we aren’t completing PSETs and papers, we’re working directly on projects alongside startups, running educational events, co-hosting pitch competitions, and building lasting friendships. 

Interested?

FOR STARTUPS


Whether it is working in the trenches with you on a company project, offering feedback on pitches, referring you to venture firms through our network, or consulting you on a strategic initiative, we’re here to help. 

 

We've worked with startups at various stages and levels of funding.
          
What can we do for you?

 

 

FOR VCs

 

Our mission is to actively grow and contribute to the Chicago startup ecosystem. We love watching this city rival the powerhouses in Silicon Valley and on the East Coast. We value educating our community at the University of Chicago on the fundamentals of venture capital, such as how to negotiate term sheets, the structure of VC firms, and the due diligence process.

Our VC partners are a valuable resource in this endeavour.


We would love to connect.
