Coming this fall: The Changing Faces of Early Stage Investing
The 2016 Wisconsin Early Stage Symposium will be held Nov 16-17 at the Monona Terrace Community & Convention Center in Madison. We anticipate close to 600 people will attend the conference from across the state and beyond and will offer more opportunities than ever before for companies to interact with angel and venture investors from Wisconsin and well beyond.
In addition to the Wisconsin Angel Network presentation track and the ever-popular Elevator Pitch Olympics, this year’s conference will debut a speed-dating segment -- "Investor Intros" -- that will allow entrepreneurs to introduce themselves and their ideas to investors. Don’t delay, however, in applying for one or all three opportunities to make yourself known to investors! In order for our steering committee to make selections, we’re seeking applications by 12pm Monday, October 3rd.
As always, the Early Stage Symposium will feature plenty of informative and inspiring speakers, panel discussions, networking and much more.
More than 40 companies will have an opportunity to make presentations and meet with investors, along with other entrepreneurs and business leaders. Many firms have cited participation in the conference as a key factor for significant business growth. Nearly 500 companies have presented during this fall conference in one format or another over the years, including some of the largest technology companies that call Wisconsin home. Information on presenting companies coming soon...
The 2nd annual Wisconsin WOMEN Reception will be on Nov 15, and will kick off the full Wisconsin Early Stage Symposium the following morning.
The two-day event will also feature:
The conference is produced by the Wisconsin Technology Council and its partners and sponsors.
The symposium is designed to unlock Wisconsin’s entrepreneurial potential by providing the right combination of ideas, innovation, intellectual property and investment – as well as hands-on instruction and advice targeted to early stage companies ready to make the leap. #ESSWI
