Forward Fest is back for 2021 with an action packed lineup and we invite you to join us!
As always, we are committed to bringing our community high quality programming that is interesting, fun and educational. This year Forward Fest will have a wide variety of events, topics, and locations. While a lot of the events will continue to be virtual, we have many in person events as well.
Back again from last year we are excited to bring people together using our virtual desktop event platform and mobile app. This gives us all the opportunity to build a schedule of events to attend, connect with event organizers and sponsors directly, and network with the community of entrepreneurs and creatives that make Forward Festival so special.
In order to provide access to as many members of the community as possible, we have a variety of registration options including a cost-free ticket (thanks to our generous sponsors) for virtual events only. Some events have a ticket price, but access to the majority of the events and the app is open to all at no cost.
Having said that, there are multiple ways to get involved in Forward Fest 2021:
- Register for a Forward Pass and get access to the Forward Fest app
- Spread the word far and wide. This year’s Forward Festival is accessible to a nationwide audience and it’s a great chance to introduce your friends and colleagues outside of Madison to the Fest.
- If you or your company are in a financial position to support the Festival and the entrepreneurial ecosystem, please consider purchasing a “Friend of the Festival” ticket, typically valued at $300.
- We are happy to be bringing the Festival to the broadest audience possible, and support the venues, businesses and ecosystem. Thanks for being part of it.
