Emerging companies may seek ‘speed dates’ with major firms at March 20 Tech Summit


Emerging companies may apply through Feb. 22 to meet with major firms and explore potential business relationships around technology needs and innovation as part of the 10th annual Wisconsin Tech Summit, which will take place in-person at Green Bay’s Lambeau Field.

The day-long event will be held in-person Monday, March 20, 2023. More information, including the online application form, can be found at wistechsummit.com. Past emerging companies are encouraged to apply.

The Tech Summit will feature a series of brief meetings, or “speed dates,” to foster communication and partnership. It is produced by the Wisconsin Technology Council.

Participating major firms thus far are: Advocate Aurora Research Institute, American Family Insurance, Findorff, Google, J.P. Morgan, Kimberly-Clark, Kwik Trip, OEM Fabricators, Oshkosh Corp., Promega, Rockwell Automation, RSM US, Schreiber Foods, Shive-Hattery Architecture + Engineering and TitletownTech. Others will be announced soon; contact the Tech Council if interested in taking part.

“There are many reasons why major firms would want to meet with emerging companies, and vice versa,” said Gary Frings, chairman of the Tech Council. “This is a way to enhance company-to-company connections in Wisconsin and beyond, with benefits to entrepreneurs and major firms alike.”
