Wisconsin State Grants and Programs for Small Business
The state of Wisconsin has long been recognized for the production of dairy products and for occupying a unique location of the Great Lakes region, just south of the Canadian border. The state’s economy has been continually evolving for three centuries, from fur trading to lead mining, agriculture, lumber and finally dairy farming, which remained the most important industry until the 21st century. Since its founding, Wisconsin’s advancement of relatively progressive social policies has informed the state’s cultural climate and continues to do so today. In this research brief, we will look at some of the state grant, financing and support programs that are available to business owners and entrepreneurs.
