The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) is proud to collaborate with BizTimes Media again this year on its annual WisconsinBiz magazine. In this publication, you will read many success stories from every region of the state that illustrate how companies, communities and people are making a positive impact on Wisconsin’s growing economy.

Helping turn possibilities into realities is at the heart of WEDC’s mission. Whether it is working with our partners to provide capital to an entrepreneur launching a new business, assisting a Fortune 500 company seeking to expand or establish operations in Wisconsin, or helping a community revitalize its downtown, WEDC uses the power of collaboration to ensure our state thrives in a globally competitive environment.

I am honored to work with representatives from the hundreds of local and regional economic development organizations, educational institutions and industry groups whose work helps fulfill the potential that exists in every corner of our state.

Thank you for helping to make Wisconsin shine.
