Startup Grind Madison to host Sidecar co-founder and Mercury Fund VC, Adrian Fortino February 19

Startup Grind Madison is a monthly fireside chat series located in 100State on the Capital Square. Our goal is to bring together Madisonians who share an interest in startups, small business and innovation and want to build Madison's startup community.

On February 19, we will be holding a fireside chat with Adrian Fortino of the Mercury Fund at 100state. Adrian is the Midwest Director of the fund which invests in early-stage stage software, health tech and science ventures with seed funding. Prior to the Mercury Fund, he also founded multiple startups, including Sidecar which directly competes with the likes of Uber and Lyft.

We will meet at 6pm for food and networking before the fireside chat begins at 7pm. Thanks to a partnership with MobCraft Beer, we will also serve MobCraft's latest monthly vote-winning beer as part of your ticket price. At the end of the fireside chat, you will get the chance to ask Adrian your own questions.

100state is located on the 6th floor of the Wisconsin Veterans Museum, 30 West Mifflin Street. Purchase your tickets here:
