Gov. Scott Walker talked about the need for more early stage capital in Wisconsin during his Jan. 15 State of the State address in the Capitol. Here is what he said:

“During the coming year, I look forward to working with lawmakers in both parties on ways to improve the amount of investment capital available to help startups and other small businesses grow new jobs in our state.”

Tom Still, president of the Wisconsin Technology Council, welcomed the governor’s remarks.

“We’re appreciative of Gov. Scott Walker’s State of the State speech mention of the
need for an investment capital program in Wisconsin. If state policymakers want
to create more companies and jobs, this idea is a sound investment,” Still said.
