"Transforming Information through Innovation”
Read coverage of the inaugural Wisconsin Tech Summit HERE.
On behalf of the Wisconsin Technology Council and our conference co-chairs, Sujeet Chand of Rockwell Automation and Munesh Makhija of GE Healthcare, thank you for your interest in the 2014 Wisconsin Tech Summit! MISSION The goal of the Wisconsin Tech Summit is to bring together major companies and emerging firms in a setting that allows them to meet and explore likely business relationships around technology needs and innovation. Major companies will be able to hear from emerging firms with innovative products or services tied to areas such as “big data,” connected devices and data analytics in sectors ranging from health care to information systems, and from power electronics to telecommunications. Those relationships might include contracting for research and development, becoming part of a larger supply chain, and pursuing investment or acquisition strategies. The summit is based on the assumption that large and small companies travel in different “orbits,” even if they’re in the same business sectors, and rarely collide except by chance. FORMAT To foster this type of communication, the 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.
The application process is now closed. Applications will be screened by the participating major companies and selected for meetings based on the information provided. Participating major companies thus far include American Family Insurance, AT&T, Aurora Healthcare, BloodCenter of Wisconsin, Direct Supply, Faith Technologies, GE Healthcare, HP Enterprise Solutions, IBM, Intel, Johnson Controls Inc., Kraft Foods, Plexus, Rockwell Automation, Runzheimer International and TASC (Total Administrative Services Corp.). ADDITIONAL ELEMENTS - Our “Office Hours” meetings and presentations, which will be available to all participants during those times in which they are not scheduled to be a part of a “speed-dating” sessions. - Addresses by major speakers who will bring perspectives that will be helpful for major companies as well as emerging firms. - An opening panel discussion that will help set the stage by affording major companies an opportunity to talk generally about their goals, needs and emerging markets. - A networking reception will immediately follow the Summit. Attendance at the event is limited to representatives of participating major companies, selected emerging companies and event sponsors.
