Innovation in agriculture, energy and AI: Learn more at May 21 Tech Council luncheon

May 21 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm



Resiliency and sustainability in the face of animal disease, energy storage, personal health and crop management will bring four young companies to the stage Tuesday, May 21, during a Wisconsin Tech Council luncheon in Madison.

Join us mid-day at the Sheraton Hotel on Madison’s John Nolen Drive to hear short pitches and reactions from a panel of experts. Registration and networking begin at 11:30 a.m., lunch at noon and the presentation at 12:30 p.m. The cost is $10 for students and returning veterans, $25 for individual members, $35 for non-members and included for Tech Council corporate members.

Four startups will each make a three-minute pitch to a panel of investors and awardees of planning grants from the National Science Foundation. Those companies are:

  • Acepsis, a Lodi-based firm that is focusing on development of chlorine dioxide-based technologies for agricultural hygiene applications;
  •, an Appleton firm that uses soil sensors that use AI to quantify soil nutrients with more precision, thus controlling yield, cutting expenses and reducing emissions;
  • Flux XII, a Madison-based firm that is using organic flow battery chemistries to develop better grid-energy storage solutions;
  • Food FiXR, a Milwaukee company that aims to revolutionize health by helping people better connect with “food as medicine” in their lives.

Reaction panelists are Jeff Ebel, president of Midwest Wealth Ventures; Karen Frost, vice president of economic development and innovation for The Water Council; and Adhira Sunkara, director of strategy and innovative ventures of WiSys. Tech Council President Tom Still will moderate.

This luncheon is sponsored by the Dane County Regional Airport.
