StartingBlock Madison

Create a hub providing entrepreneurial amenities to the community

StartingBlock Madison is an entrepreneurial hub where entrepreneurs, investors, advisors and community members can connect, share innovative ideas and create next-generation businesses. The space integrates gener8tor, a top 15 accelerator within the U.S., Doyenne, a group that supports women entrepreneurs, and more, all under one roof. Through the leadership of these core partners, StartingBlock Madison’s vision is to provide affordable and flexible work space to startup organizations, and to create a centralized network of existing and emerging industry players, professional advisors and mentors.

The space was designed to have the vibe of a startup company and was supported by many local donors, including the city and state, American Family, Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation and EUA. StartingBlock Madison is an anchor tenant in American Family Insurance’s “Spark” development located within Madison’s revitalized Capitol East District.
