This year’s virtual event, put on by the Wisconsin Technology Council, will focus on COVID-19 economics survival, recovery and prosperity for young companies during a ‘new normal.’

It will still allow for one-on-one meetings, six panels, workshops and a keynote address. This year’s keynoter is Brian Pinkerton, chief architect for Apple’s artificial intelligence, otherwise known as Siri, and a UW-Madison alumnus.

The winner of the Wisconsin Governor’s Business Plan Contest will also be announced. See student stories featuring the finalists:
