Directory: Economic Development Regions

    In Wisconsin, economic development doesn’t just happen at the state level. Regional and local organizations work within their communities to both foster growth for existing businesses and attract new ones. Wisconsin Biz’s 2013 economic development directory includes almost 100 entities whose primary purpose is to facilitate a strong and vibrant economy here, from the statewide Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation to regional and county offices.
