About 30 investors from this corner of the state have pooled their resources and set up and investment fund to get new businesses started. Managing Director David Trotter says the Winnebago Seed Fund has $11 million and it is searching high and low for suitable candidates. He says 95% of the companies he’ll talk to aren’t what his investors are looking for.
Trotter says he’d like to have about a dozen start-ups with great potential under the fund’s umbrella. Entrepreneurs and their high-tech companies typically haven’t given Northeastern Wisconsin a lot of consideration, but this could change the game.
