Believe in Wisconsin
Our Mission is “to serve as an efficient philanthropic conduit for keeping our best and brightest in Wisconsin by creating high paying jobs that will help our state compete, prosper and thrive.”
Since 2013, BrightStar Wisconsin has worked with angel groups and venture funds, government, educational institutions, and charitable organizations to identify, invest or co-invest in, and promote fast-growing early-stage companies to create jobs in Wisconsin.
BrightStar has seen hundreds of deals, invested in over 70 early-stage companies and knows what it takes to get these high growth companies moving. Our hope is that the Foundation grows and becomes a lightning rod for donations by other individuals, businesses, and charitable organizations that want to see our great state continue to be able to produce those jobs that allow our citizens to use their skills, education, and talent to their fullest.
