Wisconsin Technology Council applauded the state’s selection Friday of
Sun Mountain Kegonsa as the manager of the early stage capital program
that will invest in Wisconsin’s most promising startup companies.

Tech Council President Tom Still issued the following statement:

“We are excited that this important program for our state’s economy is
moving forward with the selection of a credible manager like Sun
Mountain Capital. Our organization has worked with Sun Mountain’s team
previously and is familiar with their commendable
work as a fund manager in other states.

We also are pleased to see that the program’s management will move
forward with ties to Kegonsa Capital Partners, one of the leaders in
Wisconsin’s venture capital community. Kegonsa has been investing for
years in companies across the state and
will have a ‘boots-on-ground readiness’ to connect with many of the
investment opportunities that exist here.”
