Wisconsin Early Stage Symposium Set for Nov. 10-11th (Wisconsin Technology Council)

The Wisconsin Early Stage Symposium will be held Nov 10-11, at Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center in Madison. This conference is designed to help entrepreneurs learn how to pursue private equity - and to prepare them for regional and national venture conferences. Early-stage companies from Wisconsin and the Upper Midwest will be professionally "coached" by venture and service professionals, as well as veteran company executives with stories to tell. Conference highlights include:
  • The annual "Elevator Pitch Olympics" for very early stage companies
  • Separate investor-oriented tracks for angel-ready companies and beyond that are seeking private equity capital
  • A workshop for entrepreneurs to learn and practice their pitch to investors
  • A "First Look Forum" for presenting selected pre-commercial, campus-based discoveries
  • An invitation-only event for investors hosted by the Wisconsin Angel Network
  • A Nov. 10 reception celebrating early stage companies
  • A workshop for companies that may seek SBIR grants

Major speakers with messages of interest to Wisconsin investors, entrepreneurs and others in the tech-based economy. Returning by popular demand: Bill Joos of Go-to-Market Consulting.
