I saw the headline and thought it involved shooting competitors and giving kickbacks to corrupt politicians. #ChicagoStyle
That said, I got to meet a lot of Cleversafe folks (all awesome people) a couple weeks back at Bio-IT World in Boston -- including its founder, Chris Gladwin, who gave a terrific presentation about what lies ahead for the company.
Gladwin also founded another tech company based in Chicago, MusicNow, about 15 years ago. In 2004, he sold the company -- and founded Cleversafe less than six months later.
It's no Silicon Valley, but Chicago definitely has its innovators.
