Andy Nunemaker, who has been an active member of Milwaukee’s Golden Angels Investors for more than 20 years, built and led companies and created a legacy of community service, will be inducted into the Wisconsin Technology Council’s “George Mosher Memorial Investor Hall of Fame” during the Nov. 8-9 Wisconsin Early Stage Symposium.
Nunemaker is currently CEO of Groupware Technologies, a healthcare software company in the care management market. He has led or co-founded companies such as Dynamis Software, EMSystems and EmOpti, and served on boards at Sprecher Brewing, Northwestern Mutual and ConsortiEx. He also held executive roles with GE Healthcare, including CEO of GE Healthcare for Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia.
The “Investor Hall of Fame” was established by the Tech Council to highlight the importance of angel and venture investors to the early stage economy. It was renamed in 2019 in honor of the late George Mosher, one of the first inductees and a prolific angel investor.
“Andy Nunemaker is a very successful investor but he’s also an entrepreneur and someone whose contributions to the state and the community are legion,” said Tom Still, president of the Tech Council. “Nunemaker has consistently stepped forward to invest in and otherwise help young companies and entrepreneurs.”
He joins past Hall of Fame inductees Dick Leazer, Wisconsin Investment Partners; the late George Mosher; the late Roger Ganser, Venture Investors; Jeff Rusinow, Silicon Pastures; the late Carl Gulbrandsen, Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation; Tom Shannon, BrightStar Wisconsin Foundation; John Neis, Venture Investors; Jan Eddy, Phenomenelle Angels, Tim Keane, Golden Angels Investors; Bob Wood, Wisconsin Investment Partners; and Joe Hildebrandt of Phenomenelle Angel Fund and the DaneVest Tech Fund.
