Since 2011, Crain's Chicago Business has been singling out Chicago tech scene standouts in a mashup known as the Crain's Tech 50. This year, Reverb.com founder and CEO, David Kalt, joins the founders, CEOs, technologists and risk takers that make up the master list of tech names you should know.
From Crain's Chicago:
"Kalt made his bones in fintech as co-founder of OptionsXpress, an online futures brokerage he sold in 2011 for $1 billion. But it’s his second act, online music equipment exchange Reverb.com, that’s turning heads now. Reverb has mushroomed into a $100 million-a-year business that gives equipment-seeking musicians an alternative to eBay. Brad Keywell and Eric Lefkofsky, fellow University of Michigan alums, are among the investors who put in $25 million last year."
