On this episode of Investor Connect, Hall welcomes Jason Jacobsohn, Founder and Managing Partner at Propellant Ventures.

Located in Chicago, IL, USA, Propellant Ventures is a Seed stage venture capital fund that invests in the growth of Chicago and the greater Midwest across a broad range of powerful, diverse, and leading-edge B2B industries such as healthcare, future of work, supply chain, fintech, and edtech.

Propellant Ventures recognizes that it can be a challenge for early-stage entrepreneurs to raise venture capital. That’s why they see that as a tremendous opportunity to be that capital partner at the initial stages of growth.

Jason is well known in the Chicago area as a “connector” and go-to person for entrepreneurs who want to grow and maintain their success. Prior to launching Propellant Ventures, he was a Principal at Bascom Ventures, which is a venture capital fund that invests in seed, growth, and later-stage companies with a Wisconsin alumni connection. 

In addition, Jason launched and currently runs the Chicago chapter of Founder Institute, which is the world’s largest pre-seed startup accelerator, with chapters across 220+ cities around the world. Jason received his MBA from DePaul University and his BBA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Jason helps early-stage entrepreneurs in the Midwest region, find their way to success.
