Wisconsin is a good investment.

Wisconsin lives to help you find success. Part of that is creating a stable, low-risk, supportive environment for doing business. Our state has a balanced budget; tax exemptions for manufacturing, qualified research, and biotechnology; and the highest public pension funding ratio in the nation. In fact, our pension system has been fully funded for more than a decade. This translates into a low risk of unexpected tax burdens—both for your company and for your Wisconsin-based employees.

In addition to a great business environment, you’ll also have an experienced guide. WEDC is here to provide industry expertise that advances your expansion strategies; help you navigate governmental processes; and connect you with the knowledge, tools, and relationships you need to minimize risk and maximize return on your investment.
