Multiple CE companies have been selected to pitch at the Wisconsin Early Stage Symposium being held this week, November 2-3. The annual conference will feature investor pitches where companies give a 7 minute pitch to investors. CE companies selected to pitch include Murfie.com, Door 6, Flatt Cola, and Spill. In addition to this, the “Elevator Pitch Olympics” will also take place, where companies will have 90 seconds to pitch their idea to a panel of judges.

“The presenting companies at the Early Stage Symposium reflect the diversity of Wisconsin’s tech-based economy,” said Tom Still, president of the Wisconsin Technology Council. “From drug development to Internet solutions, and from production of medical isotopes to new applications in construction, mobile gaming, nanotechnology and water treatment, these companies represent potential opportunities for investors.”

Chris Meyer of Sector67 will be on the panel “Lean start-ups: Innovating for success in product design and life sciences”.
