Forward Thinking.

Administered by UW-Madison’s Discovery to Product (D2P), the Innovate Network is UW–Madison’s front door for innovators to find resources designed to help them bring their ideas to the marketplace.

The Network serves as a hub for a collaborative group of campus-based and campus-affiliated member organizations that work to achieve two common goals:

  • Fostering a strong culture of innovation and entrepreneurship at UW-Madison
  • Strengthening the connection between campus and the entrepreneurial network in the Greater Madison community
