Jeff Carter

Co-Founder
West Loop Ventures, Hyde Park Angels

Introduction

co-founded Hyde Park Angels. Was a trader, and traded my own money-contrary to a lot of guys out there-I wasn't a broker. My word is my bond. Try to help you out even if I am not invested, and seek to make Chicago the best place around for supporting startups. We have a good base, but can do more.

I'm up for

meeting, casual drinks, Cub games, bike riding and finding out new things. I like to build relationships.

What comes first.  Deal Flow?  or Members?  It's a conundrum of angel groups.  When a new angel group in Chicago or the surrounding area starts up, people ask my opinion.  I am thrilled.

  It's great to see a lot of educational events surrounding entrepreneurship cropping up all over the city of Chicago.  It seems every part of the educational ecosystem is beginning to fire the "build your own business" cylinders.

Anna Davlantes doing her part to help the local start up community.  A week ago, she had smarteys.com on her morning show.  It's great when local media do their part to publicize the local community.
