In October 2019, Elizabeth Bleakley and two fellow University of Chicago alumni and business owners founded Chicago Booth Angels (“CBA-Chi”), part of a global network to bring high-quality angels and early stage startups together. The Chicago organization shares the core values of supporting innovative ideas and providing quality educational and learning opportunities in the entrepreneurial space. Among a host of other quality programming and networking opportunities to come, CBA-Chi will periodically host events presenting emerging entrepreneurs.
