A conversation about startup investing with Dave Sachse, an angel and venture capital investor in the Sheboygan area.

For most people, the world of startup investing is inaccessible and confusing at best. Unfortunately for the startup founders who need capital, trying to navigate the investment landscape can be just as overwhelming.

As part of Startup Wisconsin Week, The Surge will be cutting through all the noise and getting straight to the core of startup investing in a conversation with Sheboygan-based investor, Dave Sachse.

Dave is an investor in early-stage startups, both as an individual angel investor and as part of a venture capital fund that he started with his family. As a former startup founder himself, Dave knows the difficulties that startups experience in understanding and accessing capital to help start and scale their business.

This conversation will dive into the different types of startup investments, how to access and navigate the investment world, what to expect when pitching for and receiving capital, and how the venture capital industry is evolving.


The Surge is fostering a diverse network of engaged problem-solvers who love to collaborate and grow. By providing focused programming, access to unique resources, and a culture of innovation, The Surge seeks to enable the creation of new value for Sheboygan County, its residents, and beyond.

Thanks to the Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation (SCEDC) for supporting the creation and ongoing development of The Surge.
