"FaB Wisconsin's efforts haven't really been replicated anywhere in the country, and its accelerator will help startups establish crucial industry connections. Creating a supportive environment for those companies through an accelerator is a great way to get them to the next level."     

- Grant Ferrier, President of the Nutrition Capital Network

"The accelerators offered by The Water Council, FaB Wisconsin and the Midwest Energy Research Consortium are best in class, providing target industry support where each sector most needs it."

- Lee Swindall, Vice President of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp.

"It turns out that food businesses, local and otherwise, make money (and don't) in predictable ways. The more entrepreneurs, investors, and financial professionals have a common understanding of what works, the more successes we'll have."      

- Tera Johnson, Founding Director of the Food Finance Institute

"Just having someone [like FaB's Brad Rostowfske] who has built process engineering plants in the past, they're so connected with groups that can help out. We've been able to analyze our brewing process and make tweaks to be confident in all our projections."

- Henry Schwartz, CEO of MobCraft Beer
