According to a report from Built in Chicago, an advocacy group for the Chicago digital startup community, local startups raised more than $1 billion in 2013, a 169% increase from the previous year.

Additionally, the 18 digital companies that were acquired and the one that went public generated more than $3 billion, a huge spike compared to the $700 million generated from exits in 2012, prompting the group to dub 2013 as “the best year to date for Chicago’s digital ecosystem.”
