Badger Startup Summit

The fifth annual Badger Startup Summit is a day full of exciting presentations on what's new and next. Over lunch we convert the Hector DeLuca Forum into a feast of connections and information as we kick off our inaugural VenFair. The Summit concludes with Pitch & re-Play where vetted early stage startup CEOs make their rounds from table to table pitching to small groups of attendees, gathering feedback and moving on to pitch again at the next table.
