Happy Holidays from NEWaukee! 2018 was a year full of excitement and success for our team. We’d like to take a moment to thank everyone who partnered with us, supported us, and attended our events. This past year, we held over a hundred events throughout Milwaukee and Wisconsin. From intimate weekend-long innovation retreats to large summer festivals and everything in-between, our experiences try to build an inclusive community and create a sense of belonging in all areas of your life: social, civic and professional.

As 2019 approaches, our team can’t wait to continue down this busy and exciting path! We’ll be celebrating our 10th Anniversary, and we have some very special surprises in store.

Here’s to the New Year,

– The NEWaukee Team
