WERCBench Labs Seeks Builders, Makers, Entrepreneurs

Mid-West Energy Research Consortium (M-WERC) will offer a unique opportunity for start-ups in Wisconsin’s energy, power and control sector to interact directly with highly experienced and technical mentors. And, they will have unparalleled access to high performance computing, rapid prototyping and small-scale production equipment.  The goal is to attract inventors to come to Milwaukee to jump-start innovative technologies, transition prototype products to the commercial stage and nurture startup companies. Applications are due by May 29 for teams of engineers, scientists, and programmers across all funding stages. The program runs June 8 to August 27 at the M-WERC Energy Innovation Center, Milwaukee. The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) is supporting the program with a $350,000 matching grant through its Seed Accelerator Program. For more information and to apply.
