Technology Mentoring and Funding

Most investments are Wisconsin based. Often, we collaborate with other angel networks and investors on an early round and occasionally we join later, larger rounds. We also invite other investment groups to join our meetings on a reciprocal basis.

Please view our website, and if interested in talking with us, see the contact information in the footer, or use any other email link in our site to contact one of our co-managers.

Our Mission: WIP seeks to make early stage investments in technology and life science companies, through which we can leverage member expertise, contacts, and interests toward superior investment outcomes.
Your Mission: We want to help you succeed with your game-changing ideas and strategic business plans. Our members are experienced and resourceful at supporting new businesses like yours.
Our network is actively invested in more than 40 current portfolio companies, with an average investment of $300,000 per company. Each member decides whether and how much to invest in any given investment opportunity. There is no annual investment minimum for members. WIP historically has made about five new investments each year, not including follow-on rounds in current portfolio companies. The investments are made via an LLC that WIP creates and manages exclusively for each new investment into a portfolio company, greatly facilitating recordkeeping and tax return preparation for each investor member.
WIP conducts six investment meetings per year, held on the 3rd Wednesday every other month. Typically, a presentation is made by a new company, which has passed our screening group consisting of interested members. The meetings also include updates from portfolio companies and discussion of evaluation information for target companies.
