From Crain’s:

“The state and mayor put lot of emphasis on health care with Matter and Propel (programs for startups). We’re sitting on tremendous resources. The challenge is pulling it all together. In Boston, everyone’s on Route 128. They’re close to each other. Here in Chicago, you don’t have that. That’s why Matter (a new health-tech incubator at the Merchandise Mart) is such a good idea.”

Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Gov. Pat Quinn also are scheduled to speak.
