MADISON — Entrepreneur Jerry Jendusa, who launched a successful aviation products company in New Berlin, will speak during the 13th annual Wisconsin Entrepreneurs’ Conference on June 2 and June 3 in Madison.

Jendusa ran EMTEQ for 18 years and grew it to seven worldwide locations before it was acquired in 2014 by BE Aerospace, which bought EMTEQ and another firm for a combined $470 million. Under Jendusa’s leadership, EMTEQ grew from a startup to an international business with more than 630 employees and more than $100 million in sales. EMTEQ is still located in Wisconsin and offers interior lighting, exterior lighting, aircraft systems and integration, design, certification and consulting services.

Jendusa was an Ernst & Young Midwest “Entrepreneur of the Year” in 2014. After EMTEQ’s sale, he co-founded STUCK LLC, which was established on a platform of business advisory services, an early stage investment fund and an ethic of giving back to the local community when success is achieved.

The conference will be held at the Alliant Energy Center, 1919 Alliant Energy Center Way, just off Madison’s South Beltline Highway.
