Emerging companies may apply through Feb. 26 to meet with major firms and explore potential business relationships around technology needs and innovation as part of the 11th 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 18, 2024. More information, including the online application form, can be found in the tabs on the left. 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: CLA (CliftonLarsonAllen), Exact Sciences, Faith Technologies, Findorff, Google, Johnson Controls, J.P. Morgan Chase Bank, OEM Fabricators, Oshkosh Corp., Promega, Rockwell Automation, Schreiber Foods and TitletownTech. Others will be announced soon; contact the Tech Council if interested in taking part. Click on the major firms tab on the left of this page to see a description of each participating major firm.
There is no set definition as to what constitutes an emerging company. It can be a startup with a few founders and limited revenue or a small business with several dozen employees and solid revenue. What matters most is whether major firms spot partnership potential when reviewing applications.
