Applications now being accepted for spring Tech Summit

Special to The Freeman

Jan. 28, 2015

MADISON – The second annual Wisconsin Tech Summit will be held on Monday, March 23 at the GE Healthcare Institute in Waukesha.

Emerging companies can apply to meet with major firms and explore likely business relationships around technology needs and innovation.

The Tech Summit, produced by the Wisconsin Technology Council and partners that include the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp., is based on the assumption that large and small companies travel in different “orbits,” even if they’re in the same business sectors, and rarely collide except by chance. The summit will include a series of brief meetings, similar to a “speed-dating” exercise that will foster communication and partnership.

Major companies will be able to hear from emerging firms with innovative products or services tied to areas such as “big data,” connected devices and data analytics in sectors ranging from health care to information systems, and from power electronics to telecommunications.

Attendance at the event is limited to representatives of participating major companies, selected emerging companies and event sponsors.

The deadline to apply is Monday, Feb. 16.  There is no cost to apply, but if selected, a registration fee will be charged.
