Great North Ventures website has launched. Our new website is live! Get a sneak peak at this link before we start directing search traffic to it. We have re-focused the site on Investors, Founders, and Builders to deliver more relevant content to everyone in our audience.

Tony Lesicka and Pradip Madan delved into the future of commercial real estate (CRE) and the data problem facing it, that Coverlease is looking to solve. View the video or read the recap.

Our first venture studio startup, NextGem, is planning a late-July launch. The waiting list has just opened up in preparation for the launch. The launch itself will be at the largest trading card event in the country, the National Sports Collectors Convention. If you’re a collector, sign up on the site, or stop by at the Nationals in Chicago.
