The big fac­tors for us were avail­abil­ity of tal­ent, avail­abil­ity of cap­i­tal and a great sup­port net­work. We were hir­ing a type of per­son (who) was oth­er­wise go­ing to move to Bos­ton or San Fran­cisco; our first hire here was a soft­ware en­gi­neer who had al­ready ac­cepted a job of­fer in Sil­i­con Val­ley. Mil­wau­kee’s def­i­nitely not a hot spot yet for ven­ture cap­i­tal (but) we were for­tu­nate be­cause our lead in­vestor was CSA Part­ners, based in Mil­wau­kee. I would say the level of men­tor­ship, per capita, is higher than any­where else we could be.
