What do we have planned for this month's Meetup? I'm glad you asked.
This month we team up with the city’s first ever Innovation Week to bring you Battle of Brands—a one night pitch event to showcase high school and college entrepreneurs.
4 high school and 4 college teams will have 5 minutes to present their game-changing business concept that combines social good and technology.
A panel of celebrity judges will select 1 winning team in both categories. Those 2 teams will advance to present on a global stage the following night at COMMON Pitch Milwaukee, an event that features live music, celebrity business leaders, tech startups and 8 entrepreneurs from across the country who are reinventing American innovation (Learn more | Buy tickets).
What does Innovation Week mean to Milwaukee?
When the Spreenkler Meetup started 6 years ago, I could only dream of Milwaukee being so active in creativity, innovation, non-traditional startup companies and showcasing talented, game-changing people like YOU! Today we have many choices in Meetups, incubators, co-working spaces, hackathons, and just plain fun social events that bring us all together to celebrate our collective progress in moving Milwaukee forward.
Innovation Week is a combination of all these things. I strongly encourage you to get involved by attending an event (some are free, some have a minimal cost) to celebrate what you’ve accomplished and what Milwaukee can become. You’ve worked so hard to improve the city, you deserve some fun!
I look forward to seeing you at the Spreenkler Meetup and Milwaukee Innovation Week!
When: Wednesday, June 6,[masked]:30 PM
