WAUKESHA — Gov. Tony Evers is
asking the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation to create a
committee for entrepreneurship and innovation.
According to a press release Monday, Wisconsin “lags in small
business creation, which is where most family-supporting jobs are
created.” Evers wants the state to support small businesses, local
companies and entrepreneurship to create middle-class jobs and grow
the state’s economy, according to the release.
If created, the intent of the new committee would be to complement
WEDC’s existing programs that provide resources to entrepreneurs,
including support for startup accelerators, seed capital funds,
microgrants, investment tax credits and technology development
