The 12th annual Wisconsin Entrepreneurs’ Conference will be held June 3-4
at the Alliant Energy Center
The conference is one of the Midwest's premiere “how-to,” hands-on events for entrepreneurs of all ages and experience levels.
Attendees range from ‘treps who are still developing their ideas to
emerging company leaders who have already attracted angel and/or venture
funding. These businesses cover a broad span of categories, from
information technology to cleantech, from advanced manufacturing to the
life sciences, and from business services to consulting. The 2013
conference drew more than 550 people, including entrepreneurs,
investors, service providers, economic development partners,
researchers, educators and more.
