Wisconsin’s sports teams are teaming up with Microsoft.
The Packers, Brewers, Bucks, and Microsoft have joined forces to form the Equity League.
It’s a new impact investment division of venture capital fund TitletownTech focused on locating, developing, and investing in minority entrepreneurs and/or growth companies that are creating scalable, social change.
It’s mission is to create a long-term, positive impact on society.
“I think there will be a large interest from players of our various teams,” Packers CEO Mark Murphy said. “Not only as an investment, but to make an impact as well.”
There is an office headquartered in the Titletown District, but the plan is to expand, according to Israel Squires, director of the Equity League.
“We do have an office in Milwaukee being finalized,” Squires said. “We will be in Milwaukee getting into the eco-system and finding the genius that exists there.”
This marks the first time the Brewers, Bucks, and Packers have partnered together for the shared purpose of fostering positive social change in Wisconsin and across the United States.
