A special round of Entrepreneurship Partner Grants (EPG) will be available to groups supporting Wisconsin entrepreneurs working in biotechnology, personalized medicine and biohealth. The grants are part of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation’s (WEDC’s) commitment to the state’s Regional Tech Hub designation.
“Wisconsin’s designation as a Regional Tech Hub is recognition that our state is a leader in biohealth and in the technologies and treatments that will help everyone live healthier lives,” said Missy Hughes, secretary and CEO of WEDC, the state’s lead economic development agency. “Now Wisconsin must build on that foundation and make smart investments in the researchers and entrepreneurs working to create the next revolutionary biohealth company.”
Recognizing that entrepreneurs in this field face unique challenges, WEDC has designated up to $500,000 in Entrepreneur Partner Grants to be awarded to organizations supporting entrepreneurs working in biotechnology.
