WARF Entrepreneurons Series
The series to take if taking an idea to market is on your mind.
Entrepreneurons is a WARF series focused on bringing the fundamentals of getting a new venture started to the UW–Madison community. Created in partnership with the Weinert Center for Entrepreneurship at the UW–Madison School of Business, the Law and Entrepreneurship Clinic, the Office of Corporate Relations and others on campus, Entrepreneurons brings together thought leaders from across the country and our own backyard to exchange perspectives on core topics ranging from identifying an opportunity to building a startup team to financing and beyond. Join us for illuminating examples, discussions and networking as we meet throughout the academic year. Each session will feature a keynote speaker with national exposure followed by a panel discussion among local experts. Attendance is free and open to the entire campus and the broader community. Presentations will be digitally captured and available online so that you can join the series at any point and stay current throughout.
All presentations will take place in the H.F. DeLuca Forum at the Discovery Building from 4 to 5:30 p.m. unless otherwise indicated. Parking is available in lots 17, 20 and 80.
