Event description

Description

Northwestern Mutual is making a serious commitment to funding tech startups in Wisconsin. Join leaders from Northwestern Mutual, StartingBlock and Wisconsin Startup Week to learn more about Northwestern Mutual's open innovation efforts and Reverse Pitch MKE which launches in November during the inaugrual Wisconsin Startup Week.

Reverse Pitch MKE will bring entrepreneurs, hackers, and other creative minds together during Milwaukee Startup Week. At this event, Northwestern Mutual will pitch to entrepreneurs, outlining potential business challenges and big ideas Northwestern Mutual is looking to explore and solve. Teams that accept the challenge can earn a seed investment of up to $85,000, access to corporate mentors and networks, and working space at Northwestern Mutual’s downtown Milwaukee headquarters. Even better, entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to do what they love most—work on groundbreaking solutions that could disrupt the industry and drive innovation in the Milwaukee community.
