WSB’s Joan Schmit and Creative Destruction Lab Featured on Badger Talks Live

Joan Schmit, professor of risk and insurance and the American Family Insurance Distinguished Chair in Risk Management and Insurance at the Wisconsin School of Business, was a featured guest on a recent Badger Talks Live episode about the Creative Destruction Lab.

The Creative Destruction Lab (CDL) is a global nonprofit that supports early-stage, science-based ventures across 20 different streams, delivering a unique objectives-based program for massively scalable, seed-stage, science- and technology-based companies. CDL operates in 12 locations, including CDL-Wisconsin at the University of Wisconsin–Madison in partnership with American Family Insurance.

CDL-Wisconsin hosts two streams: a risk stream, now in its third year, which works with companies focusing on risk-tech and insure-tech; and a health and wellness stream started last year, which prioritizes the areas of wellness, medical technology, digital health, and healthcare platforms.
