On Jan. 14, Gov. Tony Evers requested the creation of a committee on entrepreneurship and innovation at the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation.
This is good news for Dairyland entrepreneurs; a dedicated committee will mean more support for accelerators, tax credits, venture capital funds and small business-friendly loans. “Providing support and resources to Wisconsin’s entrepreneurs is vital to helping new businesses grow and thrive in our state, and I appreciate that Gov. Evers is focusing on this important issue,” said Mark Hogan, CEO of the WEDC.
Hopefully the new committee’s programs and initiatives will help create the next Judy Faulkner.
