Capital Entrepreneurs was featured in an article in Madison Magazine on expanding the number of urban high-tech business downtown and in the Capitol East District. CE members Nate Lustig of Entrustet and Heidi Allstop of Student SPILL were also featured in the article. From the article:
â€œA lot of the people in high-tech and creative industries really want urban settings,â€ says Cieslewicz. â€œWith the Capitol East District we can offer them what they want, so theyâ€™ll develop all their amazing entrepreneurial ideas here rather than in Palo Alto or Ann Arbor or Boston.â€
And what they want, according to Cieslewicz and others working hard to bring Capitol East to life, is to be where itâ€™s all happening, both at work and at play.
â€œAll of the startups Iâ€™ve been talking to want to be located downtown, within walking distance of other startups,â€ says Nate Lustig. â€œItâ€™s really important to us to have that cluster of high-tech new businesses sharing ideas, people and all kinds of resources.â€
