Executive Director's Report: Demo Day event showcases M-WERC's new space

A big congratulations to all who participated and attended last week’s fourth annual Demo Day for WERCBench Labs.  I’d especially like to congratulate ClearFlame Engines which took home the grand prize of $10,000 for the best pitch of the night. Keep reading for more information about the event or click here to view a photo album from the event. It was an exciting night for us an organization and the nearly 100 people who attended.

We had another great opportunity to showcase our great new space in Milwaukee on the second floor of the Energy Innovation Center. The location has really evolved to be ideal for us as an organization as well as the partners and tenants renting offices in our space. With the proximity to our working lab, as well as the quality and variety of companies located here, the setting creates a unique platform to collaborate and bring innovators together.

I’m as excited as ever about my role as the executive director at M-WERC and am encouraged about the opportunities ahead. I continue to visit with our members and those interested in joining M-WERC. Our vision to leverage science and technology driven innovation to grow the state’s economy is resonating.

We’re finalizing plans for our next member meeting and plan to announce our programing schedule for the rest of the year shortly. Please visit our events page here for the most up-to-date schedule.

You can also contact me directly and I’ll share our plans and see what we can do to get you more involved.

Thanks again for your support!

Dan Ebert
Executive Director, M-WERC
