The state of early stage investing in Wisconsin: How did 2023 fare? Learn more July 23 in Madison

July 23 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

The last three years saw more than $2 billion in angel and venture capital invested in Wisconsin, including no small amount from out-of-state and international investors. What were the state’s early stage investing totals and profiles in 2023, how does 2024 look so far and what’s around the corner for 2025?

Join us for an update on Wisconsin’s angel and venture activity Tuesday, July 23, at the Tech Council Innovation Network luncheon in Madison.

The luncheon will be held at the Sheraton Hotel on Madison’s John Nolen Drive.

Panelists will be David Arnstein, chief financial officer and a managing director of Venture Investors Health Fund, and Shabaka Gibson, who is a principal at HealthX Ventures. Venture Investors Health Fund and HealthX are among Wisconsin’s largest venture funds, as well as participants in the $100 million Wisconsin Investment Fund announced in late May. Joining them is Mary Hannes, associate director of Golden Angels Investors.

Tech Council president Tom Still will moderate. He will be joined by Tech Council Investor Networks director Joe Kremer, who will provide highlights of “The Wisconsin Portfolio” 36-page report to be released in July.

“The Wisconsin Portfolio has been a Tech Council publication since 2008, and we look forward to sharing the latest figures and analysis – as well as hearing from investors who understand trends in Wisconsin and beyond,” Still said.

This luncheon is sponsored by the Dane County Regional Airport.
