In an effort to expand our analysis of the venture capital landscape, PitchBook will be traveling to Wisconsin at the invitation of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation to cover several VC-related events and bring our readers a complete picture of what, by all accounts, appears to be a burgeoning startup environment in the state.
Similar to PitchBook’s May 2013 “On the Scene in Ontario” series of videos, interviews and written content, this “On the Scene in Wisconsin” series will take two intrepid PitchBook employees to Madison and Milwaukee to meet with VC investors, startups with big ambitions and other key players in the industry.
PitchBook hopes to bring you video highlights, interviews, written wrap-ups and other exciting content from Wisconsin over the next few days and weeks.
The itinerary includes expected interviews with CEOs and VCs; an early stage symposium featuring startups and investors, at which Brad Feld, Foundry Group managing director, will deliver a keynote address; a visit to the University of Wisconsin campus; a look at Milwaukee’s fast developing water and energy scene; and a roundtable discussion with Governor Scott Walker.
See below for a couple video examples from PitchBook’s previous “On the Scene in Ontario.”
