Applications for the Seed613 2016 will open shortly. Email Becky or call 847.763.3629 for more information.

Keep informed about entrepreneurship in Chicago and join the hundreds of people following us on Facebook,  Twitter and through our popular newsletter.

Please note that our social media pages will change next year as we move from PresenTense and develop the “Seed613” program.

You can help launch the talent and passion of everyday professionals in our community. Every dollar you give will be matched one-to-one by an anonymous donor. Your support will have twice the impact on innovation. 


We will absolutely depend on volunteers to make Seed 613 happen. You can become a part of the entrepreneurship community by lending your valuable talent.

Here’s how you can help:

• Mentor: provide goal setting and guidance to move venture from vision to execution
• Coach: assist, encourage and keep fellow on track with their monthly venture milestones
• Advisory Board Committees: admissions, alumni, launch night, Shark Tank
• Volunteer: Expert presenter, venture capitalists, pro bono and in-kind services
