Why Wisconsin?

How did Campo Start?

Hello Everyone! Katie Lorenz here, the founder of Campo.  People ask me all the time: "How did Campo start?"  "Where did the idea come from?"  "How did you find these people you work with?"  When I was an undergraduate and dreaming of management consulting, I never expected to be chasing alpacas in Peru!   Rewind a bit...
