Company speed dates aimed at matching big, emerging businesses
(page 2 of 2)
This year, 20 major companies will take part: Accuray, Associated Bank, AT&T, Advocate Aurora Health, Aurora Research Institute, CGI, Dedicated Computing, Exact Sciences, GE Healthcare, Johnson Controls, Marshfield Clinic Health Systems, Microsoft, Northwestern Mutual, Promega, Rockwell Automation, Schneider, UW Health, Versiti/Blood Center of Wisconsin, WEA Trust, and Wipfli. Their interests range from health care to financial tech, from energy to manufacturing processes, and from data science to artificial intelligence.
How do young companies take part? They visit wistechsummit.com to learn more and to fill out a short application form. There’s no cost to apply; only if selected is there a registration fee.
For young companies, success is not exclusively about raising angel and venture capital. It’s about making the right business connections.
Large and small companies often travel in different “orbits,” even if they’re in the same business sectors, and they rarely collide except by chance. The Wisconsin Tech Summit’s speed-dating format aims to help some of those orbits to cross — and the state’s business development stars to better align.
