$1.6 Million Sponsorship from The Dohmen Company Launches i.c.stars Milwaukee and Kick-Starts National Expansion 

This month we announced a $1.6 million sponsorship from The Dohmen Company! The Dohmen sponsorship not only launches our Milwaukee program, it will also support a campaign to scale i.c.stars nationwide.

"This is more than a sponsorship. This is an investment in our community," said Cynthia LaConte, Dohmen's CEO. "Supporting this organization is the perfect opportunity for our business leaders to do well by doing good. This program creates equitable access to opportunity through technology training and placement at a time when Milwaukee needs both."
