  • About

    Rock River Capital Partners, based in Madison with an office at StartingBlock, was created by Andy Walker and Chris Eckstrom in 2016 with the belief that the next decade of great companies and returns will happen in the Midwest. We strive to find great entrepreneurs who believe in the Midwest and who want to partner to build great companies. Rock River Capital Partners, via our $23.45MM Fund I, invests in early stage companies whose products fit a market need and have disruptive technology with high growth potential. Typically, we focus on earlier stage companies where we can partner with entrepreneurs to best provide value to the companies and accelerate growth. Initial investments typically are between $500,000 and $1 million with additional capital reserved for follow-on rounds. We actively look to partner with other local and national venture capital firms as well as strategic corporate partners to provide follow-on capital and expertise.

    What Others Have Said

    • Kudos to the Chamber and the Small Business Advisory Council for the creation of the Road Construction Survival Guide. It connects the affected businesses with the city departments and the construction company in charge. The regular meetings and contact with the correct people makes a huge difference in coping.

      Teena Browder, Cork ‘n Bottle
    • My small business has a voice in local politics with the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, I have a voice here. We’re all business people and we look at the bottom line. The return on investment from my Chamber membership and the advocacy it provides is far above what I get from other organizations.

    • The Chamber has worked tirelessly to promote the interests of the local business community, and to create and preserve the conditions that allow businesses to thrive, for the good of the entire community. I can think of no organization that is better equipped to guide us through this time than the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce, and we all owe it our full support, to our mutual benefit.

    • The Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce has been an excellent resource for my small business. The Chamber provides multiple channels for business awareness, networking opportunities and helpful educational programs.
