I attended the Forward Technology Conference today. It was interesting. I’m not an entrepreneur, but I attended to see who’s doing what in Madison. I greatly enjoyed the elevator pitch session where a handful of startups made their pitches and the audience asked questions and offered feedback. The keynote by Laurie Benson (former Inacom CEO) was excellent. And during the networking sessions I met a bunch of fascinating people that I wouldn’t have otherwise met.
This conference is a cool idea, especially for a tight-knit tech community like Madison’s.
