The Wisconsin Technology Council recently released the list of these finalists, which are competing in the 20th annual contest. They made it through two rounds of initial judging, and are competing to make it into the top 12 “Diligent Dozen” entries.

They will submit a 15-minute pitch deck to be reviewed by a panel of judges, covering the product or service being offered, customer base, market size and other key information. The 12 startups that make it to the next round will present at the end of May at the 2023 Wisconsin Entrepreneurs’ Conference. Winners will be announced June 1.
