In 2016 CWI launched a new opportunity for members and other key audiences to explore and engage with the world of innovation and change.
The spark for this new venture grew out of the fact that Wisconsin, like most other states in the country, is both energized and challenged by the age of innovation and change in which we find ourselves. Our public and private sector leaders have worked and are working individually and collectively to address Wisconsin’s challenges and opportunities, particularly those related to growing our economy with more and better jobs so that we can revive the middle class and maintain our quality of life.
Not surprisingly, these efforts tend to be focused on business, workforce and talent development, retention and recruitment; entrepreneurialism and availability of capital; infrastructure; and cost and efficiency issues in both the public and private sectors. In recent years, for example, there have been a variety of initiatives dedicated to:
- enhancing student options and performance across the educational and training spectrum;
- strengthening understanding and relationships amongst employers, educators, students and schools.
- streamlining and consolidating the delivery of public services;
- understanding the importance of clusters;
- improving access to capital.
Our goal with this section of our website is to showcase research; recommendations made; and work being done related to workforce and talent development; business retention, expansion and recruitment; entrepreneurship development; leveraging capital; and addressing cost and efficiency.</>
