Aurora Health Care, Northwestern Mutual Partner on Seed Money for Milwaukee Startups

“This is a natural intersection. Both [entities] want people to live well and have financial [security],” says Mike Rodgers, Aurora’s director of strategic innovations.

InvestMKE is looking to invest in startups in three specific areas:

Digital health transformation, creating integrated technologies to deliver personalized and precise care. Next-generation innovation, such as artificial intelligence, automation and advanced analytics, which will provide solutions to make quality care more efficient. Wellness beyond health, such as financial planning, transportation and safety.

Cream City will also focus on technology, but not on a specific industry, says Schedler.

The venture, launched Oct. 30 , has already generated significant interest from local startups. “A lot of entrepreneurs think it’s great and purposeful. It will break down normal barriers. It’s energizing, and that’s infectious and very cool,” says Rodgers.

Republican tax overhaul plan gets mixed reviews in Aurora

"I did an analysis on a single mom with two dependents, a husband and wife with two dependents, a single individual, and a single retired senior citizen on Friday morning," Murphy said. "In all of those cases, my clients would owe more money than they did on their last return, and a year ago, some owed none."

Murphy spoke about protection of the 401K plans and other employee-based retirement programs and said keeping those safeguards in place was vital.

"People won't use these vehicles if they are not in place or if there is a reduction," he warned. "From a tax standpoint, large corporations are going to pay less and for people in service or flow-through industries, things won't probably change."

Murphy said people shouldn't expect to get a big check back from the government if the changes are made.

"The idea of getting an extra $1,500 or $2,000 isn't going to happen," he said. "People's tax liability will either stay the same or get worse."

Is the recession over?


Hey, look at that idiot right above me blaming conservatives. We have been telling them for months and months that a mega-depression is coming. We told them they were a big fail. We told them they were like locusts...destroying and then pointing the finger.
