We founded Drive Capital because the Midwest is the best place in the world to build a business.

Why the Midwest?

Where others see flyover country, we see a region that has quietly built its share of massive businesses, often without the help of traditional venture capital. In the last five years, more than 60 companies headquartered in the Midwest have either gone public or been acquired with shareholder equity values at or greater than $1 billion. In aggregate, these companies have generated over $140 billion of shareholder value. We feel this is only the beginning and more great companies will be built in the Midwest in the next 10 years than the previous 50.
