Support for the Wisconsin Governor’s Business Plan Contest is drawn from generous individuals and organizations from around the state. Support for the competition is a critical function of the contest’s success. Like other states, Wisconsin is learning to compete in a global, knowledge-based economy.  By helping cultivate an entrepreneurial climate in Wisconsin, the BPC augments the state’s efforts to create an economic environment that values innovation and risk-taking.

Letter from Mark Hogan, Secretary and CEO of WEDC, encouraging support of the 2018 Governor’s Business Plan Contest.
