“Big city thinker with a small town heart”

Joe Sweeney talks with AOL co-founder Steve Case about the rise of Madison, WI for entrepreneurship, innovation, and economic development.

If it’s your first time here, this blog is a collection of ideas, goals, and efforts, I began back in August of 2010 after moving back to Madison, WI after stints in SF, NYC, LA and Chicago.  Living in cultural and economic hubs taught me a lot about business and life and I’m fortunate to bring back those experiences to the city I love.

I am the co-founder and first CEO of 100state and passionate about education, the achievement gap and being a catalyst for positive change in my community.

Be sure to check out 100state, which is the community I am a part of as a member and leader to help foster education, entrepreneurship, and social impact in these rapidly evolving times.   Here are a few of the things we’ve done over the past year.

Moving forward my posts will be about my community involvement, entrepreneurship and my dream of being a catalyst to create a educational, social, and economic renaissance on the South Side of Madison, WI.
