Description

Join us for a live taping of Chicago Founders' TV!

Chicago Founders' Stories, the cornerstone program of our Chicago Founders' TV series, showcases conversations with the most interesting and accomplished founders in Chicago. We tape the series before a live audience at 1871 over pizza and beer.

Each episode features a new Chicago founder. Creator and host Pat Ryan hears their true story, and explores it as only two founders having a conversation together can. We examine topics like where the idea came from, their background in entrepreneurship and technology, achieving product/market fit, getting liquidity, two-sided networks, raising venture capital, scaling, and more.


In December, we're taking things back with another "Second Act" featuring 2012 Founders' Stories guest Matt Maloney of Grubhub, where we'll see what he's accomplished since he first sat down with us.
