Lots of stuff coming up.
2014 Madison Startup Fair (Last chance to signup!) Wednesday, February 5th @ Noon-4pm - The Madison Startup Fair is back! Organized by CE, the goal of the event is to better connect UW students to startups. It's part career fair, part startup showcase. It's FREE for startups and will be held in the lobby of the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery (WID) building. It's "career fair" style and you'll get a table at the event. Last year we had over 150 students attend, and it's a great way to get exposure on campus.
Reserve your table ASAP (Limited spots remain): https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1AtlQyQHc7V-kUIxeajCt8mqa6rlBY4Mcgf9Vj5pGW_Q/viewform
