Bio Info

Fred Hoch is the Founder and General Partner of TechNexus Venture Collaborative, which helps leading corporations and ambitious entrepreneurs develop mutually beneficial relationships that accelerate growth opportunities. A first-of-its-kind Venture Collaborative, they invest capital, incubate, and collaborate to create new growth opportunities. TechNexus has initiated hundreds of positive outcomes between mature corporations and early-stage companies for over a decade to create new business models, revenue streams, and products.

Throughout his career, Hoch has worked with thousands of technology companies to drive their growth through strategic insight and a keen focus on execution. Hoch is a consummate builder and has an eclectic entrepreneurial background that includes startups, evangelism, the birth of SaaS, and associations, with a bit of international affairs thrown in for good measure.

A native Californian, now a deep-rooted Chicagoan, Hoch is constantly seeking ways to get in the water and enjoy the outdoors through biking, hiking, or kayaking with and without his wife, labrador, and three children. He currently sits on the boards of numerous startups and the UIC School of Engineering, ChicagoNEXT, and SmartBet Charities.
