At the end of last year, Nishon Radhakrishnan was living in Boston and had just closed a seed financing round for his new mobile poker app, RadPoker. He was getting ready to hire a team and decided to relocate to Milwaukee, where his brother also lives and works in the technology space.
“I thought it was a really good opportunity to live in a new city,” Radhakrishnan said. “There’s a big pool of people to pull from and at an affordable price and also, it’s really a great city.”
Radhakrishnan now has a team of six other Milwaukee employees who work together in person from the downtown co-working space Expansive, near Cathedral Square at 790 N. Milwaukee St.
