Milwaukee – gener8tor, in partnership with the Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC), will host the inaugural OnRamp Manufacturing Conference on Wednesday, September 6, 2017 at Miller Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. More than 200 startups are anticipated to apply for one-on-one meetings with an estimated 20 participating manufacturing corporations.
“Manufacturing is critical to Wisconsin’s economy, but the industry is vastly different than years ago. A dark and dirty shop floor has been replaced by bright lights, robotics and innovative new technologies. Mixed with the improving business climate and an ever-expanding startup community, now is the time for meaningful investment. We are excited to partner with gener8tor for OnRamp because not only is manufacturing a part of Wisconsin’s heritage, it is an essential part of our state’s future,” said Kurt Bauer, President & CEO at Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce (WMC).
“gener8tor is privileged to work with Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce to highlight the best-in-class manufacturers in Wisconsin and around the region, and to commingle them with leading startups and venture capitalists from across the country. We hope the OnRamp Manufacturing Conference in Milwaukee will highlight the region’s role as a market leader in manufacturing,” said Joe Kirgues, gener8tor Co-Founder.
