from Chicago Inno
Chicago tech had quite a year when it came to startup acquisitions. Exit sales serve as a finish line for many companies, and a big pay day for founders and seed investors. RXBAR had the most talked-about exit sale of the year when it was acquired by breakfast and snack food conglomerate Kellogg for $600 million in October, and served as evidence that food startups can not only survive in Chicago, but thrive. Other notable exits included footwear design startup Bucketfeet and Brad Keywell and Eric Lefkofsky’s Drivin. Here are 10 Chicago startups that were acquired in 2017.
