WTC was created in 2001 by a bipartisan act of the Wisconsin State Legislature. The Tech Council’s primary functions are to serve as the non-partisan science and technology policy adviser to the Governor and the Legislature; act as a catalyst for tech-based economic development in Wisconsin, and; facilitate inter- and intra-state network development, especially related to the cultivation of a high-growth, high-tech entrepreneurial economy in Wisconsin.
The Tech Council Investor Networks, a program of the Wisconsin Technology Council, was launched in January 2005 to fuel the growth of entrepreneurial, early-stage financing throughout Wisconsin by providing services and resources to the early-stage investing and entrepreneurial communities.
The Tech Council Innovation Network is the membership arm of the Wisconsin Technology Council. The Innovation Network holds monthly luncheons that bring together entrepreneurs, business owners and related high- tech professionals in a collaboration rich environment. We have chapters in Western Wisconsin, the Lake Superior Region, Madison, Milwaukee and Northeast and Central Wisconsin. Attendance requires paid registration or annual membership.
