OnMilwaukee.com is a proud promotional partner of Flying Car, Milwaukeeâ€™s version of an entrepreneurial innovative approach to showcasing all thatâ€™s happening in the creative business world here in Brew City.
Flying Car replaces Innovation Week and ironically happens just a month after Terrafugia Inc., the developer of the Transition street-legal airplane, announced its vision for the future of personal transportation. See it here.
Of course, in concept and name a flying car is the symbol of the future we've all been waiting for â€“ that shiny, elusive thing thatâ€™s just around the corner. Flying Car 2013 takes off for 10 days (June 1-10) of workshops, networking, pitches, and its big signature gala. Inventors, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and members of the future-loving public (you) are invited to create â€“ and celebrate â€“ a better tomorrow.
Much of the promotion for the event is being done in a fun, positive, retro-50s environment. Like these interviews. Kinda funny stuff.
Big ideas hopefully will flow from Flying Car. Several intrigue me, but one â€“ the Kohlâ€™s Challenge â€“ should stand out. Kohlâ€™s wants to know how to best replicate the best of online shopping experiences within a brick and mortar store. Read all about it here.Â As someone who mainly shops online, I have several thoughts and am eager to hear what others come up with.
Other highlights for the upcoming Flying Car week? A MilerCoors libation innovation event, a presentation from Nina Vaca, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Pinnacle Technical Resources, which currently ranks among the Top 20 IT staffing firms nationwid, Â and much, much more.
See you there, Milwaukee! Â And, here's to the flying car. ÂRead more...
