Walker to host Small Business Summit
Gov. Scott Walker will host Wisconsin’s Small Business Summit to be held at Lambeau Field in Green Bay on Tuesday, Nov. 1, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Walker said he will speak about his efforts to improve Wisconsin’s business climate and get our state’s fiscal house in order to help create new jobs and retain existing employers.
“Small businesses are the engine of our state’s economy and continue to drive our economy forward,” Walker said. “As we deal with the effects of the global economic downturn, my administration is committed to listening to our small businesses and entrepreneurs on how we can create a strong partnership between the private sector and state government to promote job creation and stimulate our economy.”
Walker said Small Business Summit will give small business owners tools they need to help their businesses succeed, featuring educational workshops and access to Wisconsin’s business resources and leadership. The event will provide opportunities to connect with key state leaders and industry peers.
"This will be a unique opportunity for small business owners to meet the new leadership team in Governor Walker’s administration involved in job creation at key state agencies in Wisconsin,” said Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch. “The cabinet secretaries who have been actively involved in improving our state’s business climate by streamlining processes, simplifying regulations and improving communications with stakeholders will be actively involved in the day’s events."
