In the summer of 2011, Foley attorneys Christopher Cain and Galen Mason recognized that a new market of technology companies was developing in Chicago, and that Foley was not only in a position to differentiate and establish itself as the go-to law firm in the Midwest for this market but that with the firm’s existing resources and talents, Foley also could play an integral role in helping to foster and accelerate the market’s economic development.
Foley provided the office space to get Catapult off the ground. And, Foley continues to support Catapult in many ways – Foley lawyers from a variety of practice areas provide pro bono counsel, hold office hours for Catapult residents, participation in various presentations and programming, and open up their professional network.
As the Founding Sponsor, Foley helped Catapult secure similar support from other established Chicago businesses with expertise in accounting, human resources, marketing, and real estate. Connecting Chicago’s know-how with the most promising leaders of the new market had begun.
