Innovation Talks are one-hour intimate conversations with a local entrepreneur or community innovator. Students are invited to meet with like minded people to be inspired, ask questions, and network.

Bringing Milwaukee Innovators to UWM

Every month, the Lubar Entrepreneurship Center invites a local entrepreneur or community innovator for an intimate chat with UWM students, faculty, and staff. By offering these talks, LEC hopes to build a larger and more diverse network of students involved in entrepreneurship, including one that spans across disciplines and majors.

Check out our latest event series called, Social Good Morning, hosted by our very own Entrepreneur-in-Residence of Social Innovation, Mark Fairbanks. Have a free cup of coffee on us and learn about what it takes to become a social innovator  in Milwaukee.
