New tech businesses are thriving in Wisconsin — and your odds just got even better! Could your idea become the next Sonic Foundry or match.com? On the evening of Monday, March 4 at Monona Terrace, join Accelerate Madison, Foley, and Capital Entrepreneurs in welcoming TechStars Chicago to Madison. TechStars Chicago's co-founders are prominent entrepreneurs Troy Henikoff and Sam Yagan, co-founder of OkCupid and now CEO of match.com. TechStars, billed as "the world's No. 1 business accelerator," is a 12-week bootcamp program designed to provide promising start-ups with seed capital, intensive mentoring, infrastructure, and a chance to pitch angels and VCs. TechStars has a history of successful programs in Boston, New York, Boulder, Seattle, and San Antonio, and now it has expanded to the Midwest through a partnership with Chicago's Excelerate Labs. This is an exciting opportunity to learn from and with some of the smartest and best-connected people in the high-tech industry.

Presenters include Monty Schmidt, founder of Madison's Sonic Foundry; Sam Yagan, co-founder of OkCupid, CEO of match.com, and co-founder of Excelerate Labs (now TechStars Chicago); and Matt Younkle and Preston Austin, co-founders of Murfie, serial entrepreneurs, and TechStars alumni. The evening will include networking, a full explanation of TechStars Chicago, and a call for new businesses to apply to this excellent Midwest accelerator.
