Fox Ventures

Fox Ventures, LLC, was formed in 2002 as the investment arm of Fox Development Corporation, with the purpose of identifying new and innovative ideas it can support through consulting, networking, and financing. Assisting technology firms in the transition from research to commercialization has been of special interest as development of the Research Park at the University of Illinois continues.

Fox Ventures, LLC has invested in multiple sectors of the economy beyond technology, including real estate (office, retail, and residential), service, manufacturing, medical, and financial. If you would like your proposal considered for investment, and are ready to apply for funding from Fox Ventures, please provide us with information on your endeavor.
