Wisconsin had the second-best 10-year small business survival rate in the nation over the last decade. Only Iowa had a better ranking
Missy Hughes, chief executive of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp., said one of the reasons Wisconsin may be near the top when it comes to 10-year small business survival is the support structure around the state’s small business community.
“Wisconsin has a really vibrant support system for our small businesses,” she said. “Whether it’s our small business development centers, or our local chambers of commerce, we really have a hands-on approach to helping our small businesses survive.”
