Big Shoulders: Howard Tullman, CEO of 1871 Chicago

1871 is booming. In 2015, UBI Global ranked 1871 the highest-ranked university incubator in North America. They grew their physical footprint, adding 25,000 square feet to the already enormous space. And they already house over 325 early stage digital startups. But that was last year. This is 2016. I’m incredibly excited about what the new year is bringing for Chicago’s tech hub, and I interviewed CEO Howard Tullman to have him tell us “what’s next” for 1871. Watch as Howard presents his vision for where 1871 will go from here live on Advisor.TV.
