2017 Q3 Milwaukee vs Madison Technology Startup Funding

In 2017 Q3, no Milwaukee Technology Startups received funding, which makes for a pretty boring chart! So, instead, I decided to compare Milwaukee to Madison:

Quarterly investments in technology startups in Milwaukee and Madison over the seven-quarter period including 2016 Q1 through 2017 Q3.

It appears technology startups in Madison, WI, have received considerably more funding compared to technology startups in Milwaukee, WI. My calculations show an average of nearly 11 times as much money was invested in technology startups in Madison compared to Milwaukee over the past seven quarters!

NOTE: The following caveats apply to the above graph and findings:

  1. All information is from FormDs.Com.
  2. To be included as a Milwaukee-Area Technology Startup Funding event on this report, the business must be located in the Milwaukee-area as defined by FormDs.Com; the business must be in the Technology Industry Group (which includes Computers, Telecommunications, and Other Technology); and the business must not be publicly traded.
  3. To be included as a Madison-Area Technology Startup Funding event on this report, the business must be located in the Madison-area as defined by FormDs.Com; the business must be in the Technology Industry Group (which includes Computers, Telecommunications, and Other Technology); and the business must not be publicly traded.
  4. I’m not a startup funding professional or an accountant. If there’s something wrong with this report, be nice, tell me, and I’ll try to correct it.
