Creating a Video Game Company in Wisconsin

This will be a fantastic event. 

 Ben Geisler and Norb from Frozen Code Base will be coming in from Greenbay, WI to talk about starting a video game company in Wisconsin.  Ben was first able to raise a small amount of seed money in this state and then later was able to raise money from the west coast to build his company Frozen Code Base in Northern Wisconsin.  His company is a developing success story with the launch of their first game on Xbox live arcade, "Screwdiver."

 Ben and Norb will be a riot as they present this topic like no other.  Norb is a true performer and adds a level of creativity to topics, that just can9t be matched.   Please join us for a short presentation, ask alot of questions, and then pennding enough contributions we might all rent a bus to travel to the Brew City Bruisers Roller Derby with Frozen Code Base.  Frozen Code Base is a big fan of the bouts and is also a sponsor, so it should be a good time to get to know some of the most interesting entrepreneurs that Wisconsin has to offer.
