9:25-9:55 Panel: How corporate resources can help emerging firms
Wisconsin’s infrastructure includes a number of institutions and businesses, public and private, that can help young companies find a pathway to success. The public side of the picture is relatively well-known, but entrepreneurs aren’t always aware of private resources that can be brought to bear. We’ll hear from four major companies and colleges taking part in the Wisconsin Tech Summit on what they do to help emerging firms gain traction in areas such as research, law, accounting and general business practices. They are Concordia University, Husch Blackwell, Marshfield Clinic Health System and WIPFli.
