Posted by Allison Wallner on April 29, 2016 in Doing business

Do I have to go? Whom will I talk to? What do I say? These questions used to flood my mind anytime a networking event was presented. I envied those that waltzed into a networking event with such relaxation and grace and that could approach strangers. I’d much rather be sitting at a table with […]



Communication in a Digital Age

Posted by Jessica Hamilton on April 1, 2016 in Doing business

After reaching out to a someone recently for an interview to supplement a story I was writing, I was surprised when the person offered to meet for the interview over coffee, rather than just answering the questions via email (as routinely done).

I also am forever grateful to all the people who helped me […]


Being a Thankful Entrepreneur

Posted by Brian Lee on November 25, 2015 in Doing business

Madison’s startup scene has grown exponentially over the past five years. For example, when I helped to launch Madworks Coworking at University Research Park in summer 2013, three other coworking spaces opened around the same time.
