THE AGILITY SHIFT By Pamela Meyer, PhD Is Released


So who’s dressing up as a unicorn this weekend?

Uptake, the predictive analytics startup led by Groupon co-founder Brad Keywell ⇒, raised another $45 million at reported $1.1 billion valuation. 


Rather than wringing his hands about whether Chicago is Silicon Valley or not (hint: not), he’s found a very Midwestern way to make money on this one: pairing with Caterpillar and building verticals on energy, rail, construction and mining. 

Not only another unicorn this week, but another Chicago startup on “Shark Tank.” The founders of Rent Like a Champion, a platform for renting rooms on game weekends that started at Notre Dame and now operates in 21 college towns, face the sharks Friday night.
