“In a unanimous April 4 vote, the Kenosha City Council approved a master plan that envisions technology incubators and offices, education and research centers, up to 1,300 housing units, commercial space, medical offices and natural areas for the Kenosha Innovation Neighborhood,” said Tom Still, president of the Wisconsin Technology Council. “What happens next may well extend the effects of KIN to southeast Wisconsin.”

This luncheon is sponsored by the UW-Milwaukee and UWM Research Foundation.
