<p>Platform Venture is not following in the footsteps of those companies that employ an “immersive” accelerator approach. We focus exclusively on adding value to early stage projects, partnering with entrepreneurs looking to hedge the opportunity cost and associated risk of stepping completely away from their current career path. In most cases our firm plays the role of Co-founder and Co-investor.</p><p>Our process does not include spending 10 minutes each, hearing the pitch of 100′s of potential co-founders who may be very bright, but are not stepping away from ongoing successful careers. We look for those who have proven themselves both academically and in business and who are looking for a way to potentially transition into the role of entrepreneur.</p><p>Our Platform is designed to deliver the right combination of resources in the form of technology development, meeting capital requirements, design, project management, sourcing pilot opportunities, etc.</p><p>Our partners are what many refer to as “Serial Entrepreneurs”, founding Internet technology-based businesses beginning in 1996.</p>

We seek to use project-based, hands-on learning to endow participants with the tech and entrepreneurial skills, specifically, that will make them the masters of their own destiny. Using the skills they learn at the center to create community-based social enterprises, students at Artifice will build their portfolios while benefitting the community. Ultimately, we hope to combine tech and entrepreneurial competencies in a way that will sustainably raise the economic and educational prospects of the neighborhood and surrounding areas.</div><div class="mhl" style="margin-left: 20px; margin-right: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: 'lucida grande', tahoma, verdana, arial, sans-serif; font-size: 11px; line-height: 14px;"><div class="mvm uiP fsm" style="margin-top: 10px; margin-bottom: 10px; line-height: 16px;"><span class="fwb" style="font-weight: bold;">Vision</span></div><div class="text_exposed_root text_exposed" id="id_52a0be700e0069209701021" style="display: inline;">“Artifice” comes from the Latin for “made art,” a fitting description for a hackerspace over which participants have creative control. We also like the word’s complex connotation, for what is a hacker, if not very skilled and a little mischievous? Being part of our world makes participants “Artificers,” who, in fantasy literature, are particularly powerful makers, tinkerers, and wizards--al<span class="text_exposed_show" style="display: inline;">l terms used synonymously with hackers.<br><br>In the tech and engineering worlds, a “hack” is a work-around for a problem. It is often used to describe the act of making machinery or technology bend to the hacker’s will, rather than its intended purpose. We see the programs at Artifice as hacks that repurpose STEM curricula to solve the problems of structural inequality in public education and in the workforce.<br><br>The problem of inequality in public education--particularly in low-income areas of Chicago--has been the impetus for many STEM initiatives, but few programs are successful in setting participants up to overcome structural inequality in the workforce and thus to succeed in the long run. Tech, however, is the exceptional field; it is a meritocracy in which only the skilled prevail. Results matter far and above degrees or the ability to adhere to the arbitrary definitions of “professionalism” that exist in most work environments. Tech expertise is the great equalizer of our era and it is Artifice’s vision to prepare the underserved to take advantage of the opportunities it affords.<br><br><strong>History</strong></span></div><div class="text_exposed_root text_exposed" style="display: inline;"><br><span class="text_exposed_show" style="display: inline;">The project began as a series of conversations between James Crooks, computational scientist and PhD candidate in Biophysics at the University of Chicago, Adam Hammond, Curriculum Director for the Biophysical Sciences Program at the University of Chicago, and Ashley Lane, Development Associate at a youth digital media nonprofit. One of the topics was whether it would be possible to sustainably raise the median income level of a neighborhood by investing in its youth and encouraging them to stay in the community so as not to cause a “brain drain.” The other was the failure of most STEM programs to actually teach any valuable STEM lessons, change students’ trajectories as a result of participation, and/or better their lifetime earnings substantially. The outcome was Artifice, a safe community center with tech programming that endows youth with marketable skills and the know-how to monetize them without having to leave the community.&nbsp;<br><br>In June 2013, the group began discussing the possibility of pursuing the concept in earnest. On August 23, 2013, a series of conversations with Alderman Cochran of the 20th ward culminated in the donation of a storefront space at 1500 E. 63rd St. by Dr. Rev. Leon Finney, Jr.&nbsp;<br><br>Artifice launched its programming on December 2, 2013.</span></div><div class="text_exposed_root text_exposed" style="display: inline;">&nbsp;</div><div class="text_exposed_root text_exposed" style="display: inline;">&nbsp;</div><div class="text_exposed_root text_exposed" style="display: inline;">&nbsp;</div></div><p>Pending the conferment of tax-exempt status by the IRS, we are relying on volunteer instructors and non-grant donations for the success of our program.
