Tech Hub’s new platform, For-M, is holding pre-launch workshops for its incubator around Milwaukee over the next two weeks.
Attendees will “learn how to develop an idea using entrepreneurial thinking and technology to solve for a particular problem,” according to an Eventbrite invite. Attendees will also learn more about the For-M Incubator, which is set for a full launch in a few weeks. BizTimes first reported on the new program in July.
For-M is a Tech Hub initiative aimed at leveraging the best talent in the Milwaukee tech ecosystem, event organizer Archna Sahay said in an email.
The incubator program is a partnership with We Pivot and The Commons. We Pivot is a nonprofit focused on providing opportunities and support to traditionally underserved populations in the tech industry. The Commons is a Greater Milwaukee Committee initiative that helps emerging talent connect with professionals and organizations in the region.
