New QNBV rules helping startups achieve success

Ensuring the success of Wisconsin’s economy relies on creating a vibrant and supportive entrepreneurial environment. That’s why WEDC and its network of statewide partners are committed to helping startups reach success. Recent changes to the Qualified New Business Ventures program support this goal.

2018 first quarter Wisconsin Deal Flow Snapshot

The Wisconsin Deal Flow Snapshot for the first quarter of 2018 shows that overall investment in Wisconsin startups declined compared to the same period last year, according to data from Pitchbook. However, this does not necessarily mean investment in Wisconsin startups is on a downward trend overall. The 2017 total had been heavily impacted by a single $26 million investment. This year, a mixture of small and midsize deals between $100,000 and $1 million indicates that Wisconsin’s efforts to strengthen the startup and early-stage ecosystem are still hitting their mark.
