“All that I care is that any entrepreneur has all the resources here [in Chicago] to start and scale a business,” he told Blue Sky. “If you can’t make it here, it has nothing to do with the lack of resources. It’s probably your idea or execution. There’s an entire ecosystem of universities, city government and nonprofits just waiting to celebrate the next technology success.”
Moog currently serves as the vice chairman of Chicago Public Media, the education chair of the Chicago chapter of YPO and as a board member of Francis W. Parker School.
Moog earned his bachelor’s degree in political science from George Washington University. He is married to wife Lucy and has three sons — Max, Charlie and Eli.
