WISCONSIN MEANS BUSINESS

Wisconsin’s ideal business climate is the result of many forces: a prime location, a balanced budget, investments in education and training, a strong work ethic and a focus on research and development. And, as a right-to-work state with a fully-funded pension program, ambitious companies who open shop in our state are primed to prosper.

The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) and other state partners offer access to programs and resources to help start, relocate or expand business in Wisconsin. Through collaboration with local and regional economic development organizations, academia and industry associations, businesses are connected to growth-oriented solutions to help maximize their potential.
