What whippersnappers want: Building a place for young professionals to work, live topic of Jan. 26 WIN-Madison
January 26, 2016 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Ian Abston, founder of NEWaukee, will outline the role young professionals can play in developing stronger communities at the Tuesday, Jan. 26, meeting of the Wisconsin Innovation Network in Madison.
A leading advocate for “social architecture,” Abston recognized a lack of opportunities for young professional involvement in the city of Milwaukee and formed NEWaukee. It quickly grew through grassroots involvement of volunteer commitment and events transitioned from a few hundred to over 200,000 in five years.
The luncheon will be held at the Sheraton Hotel on Madison’s John Nolen Drive. Registration and networking begin at 11:30 a.m., lunch at noon and the presentation at 12:30 p.m. The cost is $25 for WIN members, $35 for non-members and included with WIN corporate memberships.

“Millennials will define Wisconsin’s workforce for years to come. It’s important to hear what makes them tick and what they value in Wisconsin as a place to live, work and play,” said Tom Still, president of the Wisconsin Technology Council.
