In 2017, Wauwatosa bioscience inventor and entrepreneur Tom Rehberger sold a second startup, Agro BioSciences, to Church & Dwight Co. for $75 million, making it one of the largest exits for a Wisconsin startup and one of Milwaukee’s best tech success stories.
With the sale, which included the possibility of an additional $25 million based on future business performance, Agro BioSciences became one of the most notable graduates from Milwaukee County Research Park’s Technology Innovation Center in Wauwatosa.
