From that experience, I would rank OCA Ventures as one of the two best VCs nationally.

OCA Ventures is a venture capital firm focused on equity investments in companies with dramatic growth potential, primarily in technology and highly-scalable services businesses. OCA invests in many industries, with a preference for financial services and for-profit education. Over the last decade, OCA has invested three funds in over 45 companies. In response to the increase of attractive seed-stage investment opportunities, OCA Ventures created a seed program called OCA EDGE. OCA EDGE invests smaller amounts in seed or very early stage rounds of highly scalable technology businesses.
OCA Ventures partners with proven entrepreneurs to build market-leading companies. OCA Ventures complements management teams with a wide range of strategic, human and financial resources.
OCA Ventures was initially backed by the entrepreneurs who founded and built O'Connor & Associates, the derivatives trading firm that was acquired by Swiss Bank (subsequently UBS). OCA Ventures is based in Chicago and has investments throughout the United States.
