How the Midwest is Positioned for Explosive Growth

Recently I was asked to deliver a presentation to the 2020 Tech Showcase. Last year the event was held at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, but this year it was being simulcast as a conference all over but focused on SE Wisconsin and Chicago. We took the opportunity to create a video piece with some incredible CEOs, entrepreneurs, and Midwestern leaders. Enjoy!



Those appearing in the piece are:

- (Host) Jason Montague, SVP of Technology at Baird in Milwaukee Wisconsin

- (Host) Todd Mclees, Founder of Pendio Group in Milwaukee Wisconsin


- Mitch Frazier, CEO of Agrinovus in Indianapolis Indiana
