BizTimes Media hosted the Future 50 Cocktail Reception on Sept. 17 at Lakefront Brewery in Milwaukee. The event is a networking opportunity for Future 50 Award Winners, representatives from the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce (MMAC), and other members of the region’s business community. Future 50 winners were also honored at the Future 50 Luncheon held on Sept. 19.
The annual awards, distributed by the MMAC and sponsored in part by BizTimes Media, salute privately-owned companies in southeastern Wisconsin that have been operating for at least three years and have demonstrated significant revenue and employment growth.
To add to this year’s awards, BizTimes Media ran a “Future 50 Most Social Company” contest on Facebook with many of this year’s Future 50 company honorees. Participating companies selected a nonprofit to represent in a public voting competition, and BizTimes Media awarded a cash prize and advertising package to the nonprofit attached to the company that tallied the most votes. Winners of the inaugural competition were Doig Corp and its nonprofit of choice, Tailwaggers 911.
