Our Mission & Core Values

StartingBlock is Wisconsin’s largest community of entrepreneurs, startups, investors, accelerators, and entrepreneur support organizations.

Our MISSION is to create the meaningful intersections that cultivate entrepreneurs, accelerate startup growth, drive innovation and build a startup community that gives back.

Our VISION is to galvanize Madison into a nationally recognized leader in entrepreneurship.

Our CORE VALUES

Think Big.  Success requires thinking big, even when the company is still small.  StartingBlock helps entrepreneurs find and actualize big ideas into successful companies by connecting, pushing and challenging them (and us) constantly. 

Fear Less.  Turning dreams into reality demands tackling obstacles fearlessly.  StartingBlock empowers entrepreneurs to fear less by creating meaningful support networks, connecting entrepreneurs to resources, and understanding that failures are temporary. 

Listen Deeply.  Making a difference means listening deeply—to yourself and to others.  StartingBlock creates inclusive conversations and opportunities for like and unlike-minds to collaborate and support each other.

"SBM has been critical in providing the connections & space to make our venture come to life. Introductions to enterprises, including American Family, have proved fruitful and meetings were efficient with time & money - no need to drive, park, etc. - a few flights of stairs and we had a client."
