Partners

MadREP is part of a strong network of state and local partners from both the public and private sectors.

We are a key partner to the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), working closely with the staff and programs of this statewide public-private agency. Our strategic initiatives align well with those of the WEDC and lend themselves to a seamless delivery of economic development services from the state to regional level.

MadREP also works with 90+ economic development professionals within the Madison Region to facilitate and coordinate resources and support for businesses and the people that power them. Through regular collaboration and communication, MadREP aggregates local efforts to the regional level, fills gaps where services are lacking, and augments successful initiatives by providing additional resources. Our collaborative efforts with local economic development professionals include such activities as regional business retention & expansion efforts, coordinated responses to prospect inquires, and regional supply chain mapping.

The Madison Region is home to a well-coordinated, professional team of economic development partners. With people who are friendly and approachable, it’s easy to get to know your business and government leaders, economic development professionals, and community partners. Together, we can help you address the opportunities and challenges facing your business.

Fifty entries from 24 communities have advanced to the semi-final round of the 16th annual Wisconsin Governor’s Business Plan Contest, contest producers announced. Of these, 22 are located in the Madison Region. “To see our Region is home to nearly half of the advancing entries in a state-wide business competition is a tremendous honor and speaks to the industrial diversity of our eight counties,” said MadREP President Paul Jadin.
Just what is it that Millenials want? It’s an important question. According to a report by Forbes, their collective spending power was a whopping $200 billion (yes, that’s billion) in 2017. As the oldest Millennials begin their 30s, they become increasingly desirable for businesses and municipalities seeking to entice this demographic to invest in careers and homes. Due to low national unemployment, American Millennials enjoy a variety of relocation options, should they decide to make a change.
