CDL-Wisconsin primarily supports ventures from around the world in two industries: Risk and Health & Wellness.
CDL Risk supports ventures who can help transform society’s ability to manage risk. Example technologies and innovations might include enhancing or improving risk management processes, addressing new types of risk such as climate and cybersecurity, loss prevention and mitigation, wearables/IoT devices, or unique data and AI/ML models to drive improved decision making.

This stream primarily engages with ventures who bring medical technology, digital health, healthcare platform, and wellness innovations to market. Additional domain expertise is provided by the School of Medicine and Public Health and the Center for Healthy Minds. Click to learn more about the Health & Wellness stream.
