Witek Keynotes the 2016 Badger Startup Summit

Badger Alum, high tech industry executive and out-of-the-box thinker, Keith Witek discussed the trend towards accelerating disruption and how that impacts key technology markets.

The MERLIN Pitch & Replay

We teamed up with MERLIN Mentors this year and brought you the entrepreneurs behind Madison’s newest ventures. 20 entrepreneurs started simultaneously at 20 tables and rotated every 15 minutes to a new table. Learn more about the companies that presented the Pitch & Replay Page.


If you missed it, you can still get to know the Madison landscape and how to find what you need whether it be partners, employees, customers, investors, consulting skills.  Start with our full list of all the participating entities here
