Forty young companies will pitch to potential investors and others throughout the course of the Nov. 7-8 Wisconsin Early Stage Symposium at Madison’s Monona Terrace Convention Center.
That includes 24 companies selected by conference organizers to present Nov. 7 during the Tech Council Investor Networks tracks and 16 more picked for the fast-moving Elevator Pitch Olympics on Nov. 8. About 80 companies from across the Midwest applied to present at the annual conference or to meet with investors through the Investor Intros track.
The Tech Council Investor Network tracks will feature companies making five-minute presentations during two sessions, morning and afternoon. About half of the selected TCIN companies are engaged in health care, biotechnology or health IT; the remainder are focused on software, advanced manufacturing, agriculture, services and sustainability.
