It’s the first weekend of Summerfest with their new format, so that’s what we’re talking about this week. But we’re not talking about the music today — we’re talking about Summerfest Tech, the one-day technology event on September 8. MBJ’s Teddy Nykiel talked with organizer Lena DeLaet who has all the details. They also talked about who will be there, from Google Cloud executives to local startup founders. Later on, you’ll hear from Kevin Conroy, CEO of Exact Sciences, a cancer diagnostics company based in Madison. Conroy spoke at the Milwaukee Business Journal’s Power Breakfast last week, and we’re actually sharing a clip of the conversation in case you missed the event. He’ll share the story about why his company decided to mandate vaccines for employees as well as the fascinating history of the company’s quest to develop screenings for early cancer detection.
