MKE Tech Three-Year Anniversary Party
October 5 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Midwest Tech Hubs are starting to make waves.
Over the last several years, we’ve seen a rise of tech hubs beyond Silicon Valley. Venture capital money is shifting to more companies between the coasts and Midwest cities are transforming to meet the new technology economy.
The Coalition formed three years ago as a growth catalyst for Milwaukee’s tech industry with the mission of inclusively doubling tech talent to drive enduring economic prosperity and life-changing opportunities.
As the tech hub movement grows, we want to take the time to celebrate the work and impact that YOU made possible through your support, involvement, and belief in Milwaukee’s tech ecosystem.
Join us on October 5, from 1 pm – 3 pm, for our 3-year anniversary celebration with guest speaker Steve Case, America Online co-founder and New York Times bestselling author.
Steve Case’s new book, Rise of the Rest: How Entrepreneurs in Surprising Places are Building the New American Dream, launches September 28. The Rise of the Rest team is hitting the road again to visit cities across the Midwest – and Milwaukee is one of the first stops.
It was a decade ago that Steve Case began advocating for more venture investment between the coasts. The Rise of the Rest began as a bus tour that’s turned into a broader movement and belief that the acceleration of geographic dispersion of both talent and capital will help create a more inclusive innovation economy that benefits not only the startups scaling but also the communities in which they’re situated.
We look forward to gathering our Members together for another anniversary celebration! THANK YOU for walking alongside us these past three years.
Note: there is limited space for the in-person event. First come, first served. Virtual viewing will be made available.
