What is this G2? There was a G2 company in the travel space a decade or so ago dived by Alex Zoglin of Orbitz and Neoglyphics fame.

The article states...

G2, which is something of a Yelp for b-to-b software, started out slowly but turned a corner in the past year as it signed up IBM, Salesforce and Marketo.

The company makes money by selling access to its reviews and data from software buyers. It creates free pages for companies in nearly 200 categories of software. Software makers can pay to license access to G2 reports for marketing purposes. Software companies can license their pages from G2, so they can upgrade them, and they can also can purchase demographic data about software buyers from G2.

The startup is competing against heavyweight tech-research firms such as Forrester, Gartner and International Data Corp.

One of the giants of the daily fantasy sports industry is looking to Chicago to set up its first U.S. outpost outside of the East Coast. Boston-based DraftKings plans to open a downtown Chicago office in the months ahead with as many as 50 employees, according to CBRE First Vice President Jon Milonas, who is advising the company on the search.

Milonas said a DraftKings executive toured various properties in the city this week with a focus on spaces in Fulton Market and River North, looking to rent between 10,000 and 15,000 square feet office space.

The link says 400 jobs to Chicago and buffalo. I would suspect more than 200.

Edit. I read it again, not clear.
