NOW: Wisconsin Entrepreneur’s Conference kicks off Wednesday

WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- Ever dreamed about being your own boss? Millions started their own businesses during the pandemic and an event starting Wednesday could help people get their ideas off the ground.

For the first time in three years, the Wisconsin Entrepreneur's Conference will be in person at the Italian Conference Center in downtown Milwaukee.

Tom Still, president of the Wisconsin Technology Council, which hosts the conference, says this is a great opportunity for people no matter where they are in the process of starting a business.

"There's going to be great advice on how to start a company, how to find financing, and learning from others," Still said.

Still says the conference will feature speakers who built successful businesses from scratch, like Greg Piefer, who raised more than $360 million from investors in the last three years for Janesville's SHINE Technologies.

Finalists in the Wisconsin Governor's Business Plan Contest will make their final pitches, with winners announced during the Thursday session.

A full agenda, plus information on registering for the conference can be found here.
