Forward Summit: Startup Showcase and Reception

The Forward Festival Startup Showcase features an evening of startup pitches from some of Madison's most compelling emerging companies. A select group of rising startups will give a 5-minute "demo day" style pitch showcasing their company. In addition, over 15 Startup Showcase alumni from past years will take part in a lightning round of 1-minute update pitches highlighting their recent successes. The Startup Showcase is a high energy stage that celebrates and showcases what's next in Madison's startup ecosystem.

An evening reception on the Memorial Union Terrace featuring beverages and hors d'oeuvres will follow the Startup Showcase.
