Entrepreneur: Chicago – The new B2B boomtown

Yet, maybe the next wave of game-changing ideas won’t spring from Silicon Valley’s pattern of building consumer-focused apps, which often gain a billion users and have no revenue model, yet evolve into valued products that solve real problems.

This is why I predict that the next boomtown of innovation will be Chicago.
