As entrepreneurs, we all know that Silicon Valley is the promised land of B2C culture-changing innovation.The Valley’s stature draws in the world’s greatest innovators; and as an incubator, this California hot spot fosters growth and nurtures ideas that will one day create life-altering applications.

Yet, maybe the next wave of game-changing ideas won’t spring from Silicon Valley’s pattern of building consumer-focused apps, which often gain a billion users and have no revenue model, yet evolve into valued products that solve real problems.

Maybe the next real opportunity for entrepreneurs lies in meeting the needs of other well-capitalized customers: corporations and mature businesses.

This is why I predict that the next boomtown of innovation will be Chicago.
