While entrepreneurs in Wisconsin raise more modest funding rounds, the momentum in the venture capital community has been growing. According to a Venture Monitor report by Pitchbook and the National Venture Capital Association, Wisconsin saw 22 venture capital deals in the second quarter totaling $101.8 million.
