BUSINESS ECOSYSTEM

THRIVING COMMUNITIES HAVE HEALTHY BUSINESS ECOSYSTEMS

The Develop Wisconsin Business Development Ecosystem is a tool to transform struggling and emerging economies into communities of opportunity.   Struggling economies are often characterized as having relatively high joblessness, a low level of entrepreneurship, few locally-grown businesses and little to no economic growth.   Local entrepreneurs have little access to capital, expertise, networks and markets.

The ecosystem framework provides an effective solution for sustaining business growth in local communities by 1) fostering greater cooperation and coordination among business service providers, 2) providing a mechanism for connecting businesses to the resources and services that they need to grow, and 3) ensuring that businesses receive the support they need throughout the business lifecycle.

Given the state of some of Wisconsin’s struggling rural, urban, and ethnic communities, there is an urgent need for a market-driven, business-focused business development ecosystem to better connect businesses to the resources and services they need to grow.

as an ecosystem, WE ADD VALUE BY connecting businesses to the resources they need

Develop Wisconsin is a Business Development Ecosystem – a network of business professionals, businesses and organizations working cooperatively to coordinate the delivery of services to businesses in Wisconsin.   We leverage our partnerships with business service providers, business networks and organizations that provide business development services, to more efficiently and effectively connect businesses to the resources – information, capital, expertise and networks –  they need to grow.   

we are a network of business services, resources and knowledge

The Develop Wisconsin Business Development Ecosystem is a network of Business Development Partners, all focused on the same goal – to connect businesses to the resources they need to grow.   Develop Wisconsin simply coordinates the provision of services, ensuring that the process of delivering services is efficient, highly productive and well-performing.   The end  result: more businesses get the services they need and fewer businesses drop out of the business development process.
