Political Open Mic: Privacy, Policy & Public Investment in Technology

Presented with Bridge the City

Event Details:

Join NEWaukee and Bridge the City for our Political Open Mic on privacy, policy and public investment in technology as part of Startup Milwaukee Week. Our Political Open Mic will give entrepreneurs, elected officials, residents, and the business community a platform to share solutions to the challenges they face around privacy and technology.

We hope to foster respect and positivity between attendees and speakers to create civic dialogue and develop attitudes focused on productive solutions rather than ideological tribes. Come with an open mind and be ready to share your voice!
