June 11, 2016
WAUKESHA — Two Waukesha County
businesses, Essential Biotechnology LLC of Big Bend and Hyde of
Elm Grove, were recently named finalists in the Governor’s
Business Plan Contest Awards Ceremony.
“Entrepreneurs, small businesses, and startups have the greatest
potential for long-term economic growth in our state,” Walker
said during the ceremony.
The Governor’s Business Plan Contest finalists gave a live
presentation to judges during the Wisconsin’s Entrepreneurs’
Conference in Madison. The 13 contestants emerged following
three rounds of judging in the contest, which is organized by
the Wisconsin Technology Council and presented in conjunction
with its partners and sponsors.
The contest began in late January with 200 entries. Contestants
had the chance to engage in a five-month process which included
the opportunity to work with mentors and receive feedback from
judges. The contest also gives finalists with top business plans
valuable public and media exposure and helps spur economic
growth throughout Wisconsin.
