The Startup Platform for Proven Executives

We focus exclusively on partnering with entrepreneurs have deep domain expertise and the material opportunity cost associated with stepping completely away from their current career path

We look for those executives that are too smart to quit their job without creating the appropriate amount of momentum and building a solid plan to transition into the role of entrepreneur.

Our Platform is designed to deliver the right combination of resources to enable the entrepreneur to stay in their current position until they have enough confidence in their new venture to make the material changes required to become an entrepreneur.

Chicago Startup incubator
Build Your dream with us

Right now a growing number of really smart younger people without significant experience or their own business connections are getting most of the attention as they compete to participate in the new “Immersive Accelerator” that are springing up at an accelerating pace.

We believe deeply that the best entrepreneurs are individuals who have already demonstrated success both academically and professionally. They have large professional networks and are ready to take their domain expertise and explore creating a new venture where they get to keep the value they create.

The role we play at Platform Venture is to be their Interim Co-Fonder. Providing those resources needed to create a foundation of momentum in terms of product development and market traction.
