Wisconsin Tech Summit

Time:

Start: 03/27/2017 8:00 AM
End: 03/27/2017 6:00 PM

Description:

The Wisconsin Tech Summit will feature pre-scheduled, 15-minute strategic meetings between major companies and emerging companies. This format will resemble a “speed dating” exercise, allowing both parties to learn more about the needs and developments of the other.

Emerging companies can apply through February 24 for the opportunity to meet with major firms and explore likely business relationships around technology needs and innovation. Applications will be screened by the participating major companies and selected for meetings based on the information provided. Applications are also welcome from early stage funds that want to introduce portfolio companies and otherwise connect with major companies.

The event also features: 

  • Educational seminars, which will be available to all participants during those times in which they are not scheduled for individual meetings;
  • An event overview and opening discussion to help set the stage for emerging companies by allowing major companies an opportunity to talk generally about their goals, needs and emerging markets;
  • An afternoon talk by Chris Rizik, CEO and Fund Manager with Renaissance Venture Capital Fund;
  • A continental breakfast, networking lunch and onsite reception.
