Logan is devoid of interesting hobbies. He loves startups, working w/ founders, suffering conversations about politics or the 49ers, and he became Managing Director of Techstars Chicago in early 2017.

Prior to Techstars, Logan was the founder//ceo of Belly, starting the company in 2011 and stepping into Board of Directors//Advisor role in late 2016. Belly is a digital loyalty platform backed by Andreessen Horowitz, NEA, Lightbank, Cisco, and 7-Eleven.

Crain’s Chicago also recognized Logan in their 40 Under 40 class of 2012.

Before Belly, Logan was Founder-In-Residence at Lightbank, early employee at PayByTouch in SF focused on leading launch of new markets, then at Redbox in marketing and analytics roles before becoming Director of Innovation/New Business. He’s been mentoring founders in Chicago dating back to the initial Excelerate Labs class of 2010.
