“We wouldn’t have made it to profitability without capital, and we wouldn’t have gotten capital if it wasn’t for WEDC’s Qualified New Business Venture (QNBV) Program. If we didn’t have QNBV, we likely would not have received funding and our business would not exist. It’s that linear.”
MY WISCONSIN STORY
Our residents are some of the happiest and most ambitious people in the nation—but don’t just take our word for it. Take theirs.
"It’s not only Generac in backup power generators that has a presence in Wisconsin, but a number of our competitors are also based right here nearby. So I think for the foreseeable future Wisconsin will be a center of excellence for energy and power production."View All Stories
