When it comes to growing a strong and vibrant economy in Wisconsin, we’re all in this together. Our state has a reputation for great collaboration between the public and private sectors; we’re proud of that, and keep working to improve upon our successes.
Industry-specific consortiums are partnering with public entities to develop a burgeoning export market; manufacturing and agriculture realize a corporate tax rate of only 0.4 percent; our Qualified New Business Venture (QNBV) program offers up to a 25 percent tax credit on investment in Wisconsin companies; regional economic development entities are partnering with companies, universities and government agencies to strengthen and diversify local economies and train a tomorrow-ready workforce. These are just a few examples covered in this year’s theme for WisconsinBiz. Because we’re all connected.
