WARF Entrepreneurons

About Entrepreneurons

Practical advice and networking for entrepreneurs.

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 Business Engagement 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.
