What's the best case for Wisconsin's future economy? Five panelists weighed in on that question, and others, at the Cap Times Idea Fest last weekend, in a conversation that touched on topics from workforce training and higher education to the roles of startups versus established manufacturers.

Members of the panel were Kurt Bauer of Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, Brian Birk of Sun Mountain Capital, UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank, Kevin Conroy of Exact Sciences and Madison College President Jack Daniels.

You can listen to their conversation in this episode of Live from Cap Times Idea Fest, a podcast that brings you recordings of the many panels and interviews featured at the inaugural event.
