2017 Q4 Milwaukee vs Madison Technology Startup Funding

In 2017 Q4, two Milwaukee Technology Startups received $5,497,001 in funding, by far the best quarter since I started tracking in 2016 Q1. In fact, Milwaukee beat out Madison in Technology funding for a quarter for the first time to my knowledge. I don’t say this to emphasize a separation between Milwaukee and Madison, but it is a notable event. In fact, Milwaukee and Madison are really in this together, and raised a combined $7,260,608 in 2017 Q4!

  3. I’m not a startup funding professional or an accountant. If there’s something wrong with this report, be nice, tell me directly or LEAVE A COMMENT, and I’ll do my best to correct it.
