Who We Are

Innovate is a website, but it’s also a collaborative group of campus-based and campus-affiliated member organizations that work to achieve two common goals: Fostering a stronger culture of innovation and entrepreneurship on the UW–Madison campus, and strengthening the connection between campus and the entrepreneurial support network in the greater Madison community. The Innovate Network is coordinated by Discovery to Product.
