From the publisher

Innovate Wisconsin

It is my pleasure to introduce you to the inaugural edition of Innovate Wisconsin.

For 23 years, BizTimes has placed significant value on the concept of innovation.

We have grown and changed to adapt to the changing needs of our readers and our community, and the introduction of Innovate Wisconsin is the latest culmination of those efforts.

Here at BizTimes, we recognize that longstanding companies like Oshkosh Corp., Harley-Davidson Inc., Epic Systems Corp., American Family Insurance and many others have been driving Wisconsin’s innovative economy for decades.

These companies, as well as startup companies, entrepreneurs, researchers and visionaries in the health care, pharmaceutical, advanced manufacturing, finance and agricultural industries in the state, are thriving thanks to a commitment to innovation.

Innovate Wisconsin highlights these stories and others.

In the pages that follow and at, we offer you a snapshot of innovation in Wisconsin−examples of how companies and individuals are changing their processes, procedures and products to better meet the needs of their consumers globally.

This is just the beginning.

There is so much happening throughout the state, and Innovate Wisconsin will be there to tell the stories of Wisconsin innovation−those companies and individuals fostering business growth and daring us to dream bigger, reach farther and work harder for the betterment of Wisconsin’s future.

Read on, and enjoy.
