“The Wisconsin Governor’s Business Plan Contest has been an enduring and productive part of Wisconsin’s efforts to turn ideas into products, services and companies. Nearly 77 percent of the applicants who made it to the finalist rounds of the contest since 2012 are still in business today, which speaks to the help entrepreneurs receive from judges, mentors and others when they enter the competition. The Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. is proud to be a sponsor of the contest, which is part of the larger network in Wisconsin to support innovation and company creation. We encourage entrepreneurs to enter online by 5 p.m. Jan. 31.” – Melissa Hughes, secretary, Wisconsin Economic Development Corp.
