2013 FTF: Badger Startup Summit

FTF-logoThe 2013 Forward Technology Festival runs from August 15-24, and encompasses 10 days of tech and entrepreneurship focused events throughout Madison. For a full event list and more information, go here.

The inaugural Badger Startup Summit event will take place Friday, August 16 and aims to connect brilliant creative people from across the country and around the world with two things in common: (1) they are Badgers and (2) they are entrepreneurs, developers, engineers and investors involved with starting and growing high-potential businesses. The network of startup Badgers is extensive and powerful. It’s time to tap into its potential for building better startups faster.

David Krakauer will discuss the intersection of higher education and entrepreneurship, you’ll learn about the startup communities Badgers have formed in Madison, Chicago, NYC and the Bay Area, and you’ll engage on the opportunities/challenges of startup geography. Most importantly, you’ll also have plenty of time for networking to build connections with fellow Badger entrepreneurs and investors from across the country.

Entrepreneurs are encouraged to apply for the Pitch & Play session for the Summit. For more info and to apply, go here.
