Gov. Evers requests creation of committee on entrepreneurship and innovation at WEDC
Friday, March 08, 2019
MADISON — Governor Tony Evers requested the creation of a committee on entrepreneurship and innovation at the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC).
Wisconsin currently lags in small business creation, which is where most family-supporting jobs are created. Gov. Evers knows that we must invest in and support small businesses, local companies, and entrepreneurship to create middle-class jobs and grow the economy.
The new committee will complement WEDC’s existing programs that provide an array of resources to entrepreneurs, including support for startup accelerators, seed capital funds, microgrants, investment tax credits and technology development loans. In addition, WEDC supports and engages an existing statewide network of partners that offers business training, mentorship and financing to aspiring entrepreneurs.
