The Sector67 collaborative space has had a significant impact on entrepreneurship in the Madison area. Sector67 provides an environment to learn, teach, work-on, build, and create next generation technology; including software, hardware, electronics, art, sewing, pottery, glass, metalwork, iPhone/Android applications, games, etc.
They host an incubator and coworking space which has already directly enabled multiple companies and products to launch. Sector67 has a great culture that promotes creativity and innovation, and has the potential to have an even larger positive impact on the community through education and company/job creation. The City should support and help scale up the good things already happening at Sector67.
Response: EDD enthusiastically supports this project. While we believe it's vital it be entrepreneur led, we are closing following the progress of Sector 67 and the entrepreneurs who are trying to create the StartingBlock concept in the Capitol East District. We anticipate that they will need city assistance and we are already thinking about ways the city can support the project.
