An event connecting Badger entrepreneurs* everywhere to share contacts, experiences and advice.
- Meet Wisconsin entrepreneurs who have successfully navigated startup, growth and sustained operation
- Make connections with Badger businesses that can help your company grow
- Give a business pitch for feedback, or hear pitches from the next generation of Badger entrepreneurs
- Build your virtual rolodex of contacts
* Note: by Badger entrepreneurs we don’t mean just UW-Madison. Wisconsin is the Badger State.
Coming to the Summit from out of town?
Summer in Madison has much to offer beyond the Badger Startup Summit. For starters the Summit is a part of the Forward Technology Festival, an 8 day ‘movable feast’ of events focused on the intersection of entrepreneurs, technology and social media.
But this year you can attend virtually from anywhere with an internet connection
Skip the hotel,
No need for Event Parking
