    MATH Venture Partners is an early to growth-stage fund managed by a seasoned team of hands-on investors and operators. The two founders are veterans of the Chicago tech startup community. Troy Henikoff is managing director of TechStars Chicago (formerly known as Excelerate Labs), a startup accelerator program housed at 1871. Mark Achler is a former Redbox Automated Retail LLC executive and venture capitalist. Both men teach entrepreneurship at Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management. Mr. Achler's former venture fund, Kettle Partners, backed Sure Payroll, which was co-founded by Mr. Henikoff and sold to Paychex Inc. for $115 million in 2011.
