Seeks To Match Aerospace Entrepreneurs, Venture
The University of Wisconsin
Oshkosh's Council for Innovation is bringing together innovators
and venture capitalists for a two-day event intended to help
promote a culture of innovation in northeastern Wisconsin.
AeroInnovate, to be held on the UW Oshkosh campus May 13-14, will
allow innovators and entrepreneurs in the aerospace industry to
network and pitch their products and services to individuals
looking to invest in such ventures.
AeroInnovate will highlight cutting-edge technologies,
entrepreneurs, emerging companies, investment trends and other
recent developments in the aerospace/aviation sector.
The event will begin at the Experimental Aircraft Association
(EAA) with a dinner and a keynote presentation by Granger Whitelaw,
the founding partner and managing director of BlueCar Partners, a
venture-consulting firm, and President and CEO of the Rocket Racing
League. The second day will be held at the University's Reeve
Memorial Union and will feature presentations, opportunities to
pitch to venture capitalists and networking.
"AeroInnovate is not a trade show," stresses Meridith Jaeger,
executive director of the Council for Innovation. "It is a place
where entrepreneurs, companies and labs can pitch their ideas to
investors and public and private development partners looking for
innovations worthy of their resources."
"As both an aerospace entrepreneur and a venture capital
professional, I am excited about AeroInnovate 2009," Whitelaw
added. "The future belongs to innovators."
