NextCapital's EVP, Rob Foregger, explains how the company has become the leader in enterprise digital advice. After a $16m Series B in December the company is actively recruiting top tier engineers in Chicago.
Chicago’s tech scene is proving sturdy, but few industries have cemented themselves as close to the center of the ecosystem quite like fintech. You’ve got startups like online loan provide Avant touting the moniker of the state of Illinois’ most well-funded startup. You’ve got renowned business leaders (think CME Group CEO Phupinder Gill, DRW founder Don Wilson, and Morningstar CEO Joe Mansueto) contemplating an official hub for fintech startups in collaboration with World Business Chicago. And you’ve got companies like payments processor Braintree (notably acquired for $800 million by PayPal back in 2013) blazing a trail and setting a standard for what success in Chicago tech can look like.
