Paul Jones, co-chair of Venture Best, the venture capital practice group at Michael Best, has been selected as a regular contributor of OnRamp Labs, the newest blog addition to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel covering start-ups and other Wisconsin technology news.
Here is a short excerpt: “The folks at gener8tor are at it again. How Wisconsin ended up with a big league accelerator program that can attract some of the best entrepreneurs from around the country – and make them even better – is, frankly, beyond me. But having met with the latest class when they started the program, and now, having had a “sneak preview” of each startup’s pitch just half way through the program, I am again astounded at the quality going in and even more so the quality coming out. No wonder more than 90% of gener8tor’s graduates have gone on to raise additional risk capital after graduating; and that with 4 classes in the books since 2012, 21 of 23 graduates are still alive and kicking (numbers that put gener8tor in the top tier of the nation’s accelerator programs).” Click here to read more of Paul Jones’ OnRamp Labs blog post located under the Business tab of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s website, www.jsonline.com.
