Dear BrightStar friends:
Hopefully many of you saw the ads that we are currently running in the Milwaukee Business Journal, BizTimes and Wisconsin State Journal. For those of you that haven’t seen it, click the link below.
This is the second year that we’ve run our “donor appeal” ad campaign. Our BrightStar donors wanted everyone to know how their donations are working to keep Wisconsin’s best and the brightest in our great state by investing in early stage startups that have the potential to create many good paying jobs.
Also, some of you have expressed interest in the past about our portfolio companies and investment opportunities. If you are interested in early stage investment and are an accredited investor, please let us know if you would like to be invited to investment presentations for current BrightStar portfolio companies or opportunities we are actively vetting if there is extra room in their offerings. Our mission is to create jobs by increasing the flow of funds to Wisconsin start-up companies, and we are happy to share our access and insights on deals we see.
About the BrightStar Wisconsin Foundation Inc.
BrightStar is a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation created to facilitate job creation and increase Wisconsin’s economic activity by deploying donated funds into equity stakes in early-stage, rapid growth companies. This new approach will enable the formation of new investment capital in Wisconsin through charitable donations to the foundation.
