Two DreamUp Wisconsin Teams Advance in Alliance for the American Dream Competition
Two teams from Wisconsin advance to the final round of the Alliance for the American Dream competition, where they will compete for potential investment.
“DreamUp is a shining example of the Wisconsin Idea in action—a true university-community partnership to improve the well-being of Wisconsin residents, with high potential to produce innovative initiatives that could be implemented in other places around the country,” says UW–Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank. “I was pleased to see so many first-class proposals submitted in partnership between community organizations and UW employees. Choosing among these proposals was a daunting task, as so many held promise to substantially benefit our community. But I believe we have selected three proposals that address serious problems in very different domains and that have a high probability of success if implemented in the community.”
