Driehaus was born in 1942 in Chicago. Frustrated by his father's inability to afford a home in an upscale suburb, Dreihaus developed an interest in investing. After graduating from DePaul University in 1965, Driehaus worked in a brokerage firm. The popularity of his recommendations meant that he was quickly put in charge of a fund run for the fund's employees. He subsequently set up a series of research firms, a hedge fund and a mutual fund.
