For the second year in a row, Northwestern Mutual opened its doors to innovators, entrepreneurs and creatives who wanted the opportunity to help the company solve some of its most pressing business challenges.
Reverse Pitch MKE kicked off in November 2018 during Startup Milwaukee Week, an annual event that celebrates southeast Wisconsin's entrepreneurial spirit and promotes the development of the region as a national hub for technology, research, business and talent development.
Entrepreneurs from across the country gathered at Northwestern Mutual’s downtown Milwaukee campus to learn about the potential business challenges and big ideas the company was looking to explore and solve. They then spent the next several weeks developing their solutions to those challenges. Sixteen teams submitted their unique solutions for consideration and seven were invited to pitch back to the company in March.
