Chicago is one of the great American cities and we are proud to call it our home. One of the City’s unique landscapes is the Chicago River that connects Lake Michigan to the City via a system of canals and tributaries that collectively span over 150 miles and eventually connect to the Mississippi River Basin.
After the Chicago Fire in 1871, the city was carefully rebuilt into a grid but the Chicago River presented a beautiful architectural challenge – connecting an expanding City while allowing ships passageway through strategically important canals. The answer was Chicago’s famed Bascule (“Swing”) Bridges.
Lodi Ventures embraces this heritage as we work with both innovators and investors in healthcare to find uniquely beautiful solutions to a very complex market.
