    Description:

    M25 Group is an early stage micro-VC fund based in Chicago, investing solely in companies headquartered in the Midwest. The firm will consider investing in almost any industry. The firm plans to make 60 to 70 investments over the next three years, coming in alongside larger funds and other angel investors. M25 is led by two of the youngest fund managers in the business, and is building a portfolio that in many ways resembles an 'index' of early stage startups in the Midwest.
