WisBusiness: Entrepreneurs' Conference Coverage
The two-day Wisconsin Entrepreneurs' Conference, which was co-produced by the Wisconsin Technology Council, took place at the Hyatt Regency Milwaukee on June 7 and 8. Futurist Joel Kotkin and Milwaukee native Kay Koplovitz – who founded USA Networks – headlined the third annual conference.
The conference's goal was to celebrate the state's emerging high-growth, knowledge-based economy and offer hands-on workshops. The gathering also aimed to expose entrepreneurs to the best business practices and the brightest ideas.
Titles from some of the conference workshops included "Grow: How To Change Tires On A Moving Car," "Trends In Federal Funding: Where Uncle Sam Is Investing His Money," and "Exploding The Myth: Bankers Who Like Entrepreneurs."
