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.
