Drones & Cones

August 24, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

drone_unsplashUniversity Research Park (@UWMadisonURP) is a great place to do business and incredible, strategic asset to Madison’s business and startup communities.


What better way to celebrate URP and UW-Madison than to @DroneAround UW-Madison’s business park with drones (aka: Unmanned Aerial Systems) and free Babcock ice cream?!


Approximately 50 people will get the chance to fly a DJI Phantom-4 drone for 3-5 minutes, offered in order of registration, so register now!


(Registration is required for free ice cream and drone flying lesson; free drone operations require good weather conditions, minimal wind and no rain.)


Drones + Free Babcock Ice Cream * Business Networking = Great Event!
@DroneAround #Drones&Cones + #WIVetBiz = #MusterAcrossWisconsin
Register now for free because non-registered walk-ins will pay $10!

· Led by @BunkerLabsWI, @WisconsinSBDC and @WisTechCouncil
· By/for military veteran entrepreneurs, family/small/veteran-owned businesses, etc.
