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.

The rising cost of healthcare has reached a critical point. According to EBRI, in 2020, a U.S. couple could need around $325,000 in retirement alone to cover the cost of healthcare expenses. These expenses will only continue to rise year after year. Additionally, across the U.S., 62% of bankruptcies are due to medical costs.
