Hear from high-impact founder Craig Dickman at April 12 Innovation Network luncheon

April 12, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Learn about being a high-impact entrepreneur in northeast Wisconsin from Craig Dickman, founder and former chief executive officer of Breakthrough Fuel, during the Thursday, April 12, meeting of the Tech Council Innovation Network in Appleton.

Breakthrough Fuel is an energy management company that helps shippers around the world better manage costs through providing real-time fuel price data, effective fuel management strategies and transparency in procurement. It supports more than 5 billion miles of transportation and manages about 700 million gallons of fuel annually.

Dickman recently stepped down as CEO of Breakthrough Fuel to launch StageThree, which focuses on startups and innovation within the supply chain industry. Dickman remains as chairman of Breakthrough Fuel’s board of directors.

Dickman will discuss founding Breakthrough Fuel and its major success over time, what StageThree will do for the Fox Valley and how both companies may partner in the future.

This Tech Council Innovation Network luncheon is in partnership with the Forum for Innovation, which will focus on high-growth companies in the region, and NEW North, the regional economic development group. It will be held at the Fox Valley Technical College Main Campus building, 1825 N. Bluemound Drive, Room E130ABCD, Appleton (Entrance 10).

Registration begins at 11:30 a.m., lunch at noon and the presentation at 12:30 p.m. The cost is $10 for individual members, students and returning veterans, $20 for general admission and included for Tech Council corporate members. Click here to register.

“Supply-chain management is at the heart of ‘the internet of things,’ and Craig Dickman’s experience in that world is well worth passing on to companies through northeast Wisconsin,” said Tom Still, president of the Wisconsin Technology Council.
