When taking your business from idea to reality, you’ll likely have a lot of questions that need answered in order to get your business off to a strong start. For example: What do you need to know about patents for the product you’re trying to create? What legal resources are available? What can local demographics tell you about potential customers? How strong is the industry you’re looking to enter? What should be included in your business plan? Who are potential competitors? Luckily, there are FREE databases, resources, and specialized experts available to help you answer these and many other questions – all found in your local libraries! Want to learn more? Put this session on your Holds List, and “check out” some great resources from your local libraries.


NOTE: Location – This event will be in person! Currently, this event is scheduled for Grainger Hall (The Wisconsin School of Business); however, given changing COVID restrictions, the event may shift to another location in downtown Madison. After you register, please refer to your email for details.


This session is offered in partnership with the Madison Public Library; UW-Madison Patent & Trademark Resource Center; UW-Madison Wisconsin School of Business Library; David T. Prosser Wisconsin State Law Library; and the UW-Madison Innovate Network.



Forward Fest logoThe Forward Festival is Wisconsin’s largest technology and entrepreneurship festival, attracting more than 5,000 attendees and serving as host for more than 40 events over 8 days every August.

Several UW–Madison leaders, innovators and key partners will join the slate of entrepreneurial events presented during the annual, 8-day Forward Fest, Wisconsin’s largest celebration of innovation and entrepreneurship.

Registration is now open for five events to be presented by, or in partnership with, UW-Madison’s Innovate Network, a collective of campus-affiliated organizations that provide entrepreneurial resources to innovators at UW–Madison and statewide.

The five virtual events include a three-event Biotech Spotlight series, which will focus on aspects of startups, tech and innovation within the biotech space. The final event, Launch, Learn and Pivot: Startup Stories will present opportunities, challenges and lessons learned from several local entrepreneurs at various stages of growth in their respective businesses.
