As one of the co-chairs of this exciting week, I invite all local entrepreneurs on the journey from “just looking” to “well established” to join us as (i) a presenter to share your wisdom or (ii) as an attendee to soak up the wisdom of others successes and failures and help propel your growth!

Planning has begun for this year’s Startup Appleton Week (@ startupappletonweek on FB), an annual series of programming that provides connections and resources to local startups and entrepreneurs.

In conjunction with the 4th annual Startup Wisconsin Week, statewide November 11-17, the primarily free programming will feature 30+ events focused on Connecting, Educating, and Celebrating entrepreneurs in the Fox Cities and the Northeast WI region.

More than 40 community partners will participate in helping to promote entrepreneurship through workshops, a startup pitch competition, seminars, roundtable discussions, social activities and more.

This year most events will be hosted at select venues to make attendance and programming easier for all.  We are pleased to partner with the following venues, and extend a big THANK YOU for their support of entrepreneurship in our community!

  • Monday: Wellspring At The Cross – Combined Locks
  • Tuesday: Timber Rattlers – The Fox Club – Appleton
  • Wednesday: Miron Construction – Headquarters – Neenah
    • Fox Valley Technical College & Bordini Center – Appleton
  • Thursday: Fox Valley Technical College & Bordini Center – Appleton
  • Saturday: Fox Valley Technical College – Appleton
