RCM Scholarship Program Presentation

Memorial Hall

Although never formally identified as such, the Scholarship program has become one of RCM’s “big things”. Now as we begin interviewing applicants for our ninth scholarship year, it is fitting time to bring to the membership a brief account of progress. Eric Isbister, Chair of the Scholarship Committee since its inception, will review the program’s origin, how it is structured, and most importantly, how it has made a difference to many of Milwaukee’s college-bound students. You will come away with a heightened sense of pride in how the Club’s membership has been engaged in supporting, and sustaining, this Scholarship program.

333 N. Plankinton Avenue/Suite 211

Rotarians and guests are invited to tour the Ward4 coworking space, also home to the Milwaukee office of the nationally-ranked gener8tor accelerator program.


Two years since its inception, Ward4 is home to over 50 different business entities. These businesses range from new startups with 1-2 employees, to companies like Bright Cellars, a wine subscription startup that Ward4 has watched grow from 3 employees to 30 employees over the past two years.


gener8tor, who also calls Ward4 home, provides support to high-growth startup businesses through a network of experienced mentors, technologists, corporate partners, angel investors and venture capitalists. Three times a year gener8tor invests in each of five startups and proceeds with a comprehensive 12-week program to support their growth.


The program will begin with an introduction to Ward4 and some of its startup tenants, concluding with gener8tor. gener8tor will also speak to its methodology and continue with a review of the program success to date. A social hour will then begin with tours of the space and wine happy hour hosted by gener8tor portfolio company Bright Cellars.


The Pritzlaff Building is located at the southwest corner of Plankinton and St. Paul Ave.  The building is immediately east of the Main Post Office Building.  Please note that you should enter through the courtyard area off St. Paul Ave. and take the elevator up to the 2nd floor.


Parking is a challenge with the construction of the downtown rail system on St. Paul Ave.
