Again this year, OnMilwaukee.com is proud and honored to help sponsor Newaukee’s YP Week. The programming, engagement and opportunities are all strong again this year.
A wonderful addition this year are small gatherings with national speakers. Although limited to sponsors and VIPs, the sessions are held at the very comfortable and cool "party" room at Rumpus Room.
Monday’s brought Lane Becker to town. Becker’s a Silicon Valley guy and founder of several companies that have spearheaded the Internet’s growth. According to his LinkedIn bio he works on "product development and product management; partnerships and business development; market strategy; user experience research, strategy, and design; investment fundraising; patience; disasters, both creation and recovery."
His book, "Get Lucky: How to Put Planned Serendipity to Work for You and Your Business" was featured here and it provides a good overview of many of the ideas that he spoke about on Monday.
James Carlson of Bucket Brigade did this awesome summary of Becker’s talk at YP Week.
Check out the entire YP Week agenda here. If you'd like please come see me lead a discussion called "Investing in your future" on Thursday from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at Villa Terrace.

The topic of sports nicknames of the "lesser known" Milwaukee colleges and universities came up recently during my Bucks ticket draft. No one could name Carroll College's mascot. It's Carroll University now, by the way. Cardinal Stritch University? I got my MBA there and didn't even know it had sports, much less a mascot.
