15 private and public sector partners hope to make Wisconsin a 'Regional Tech Hub'
12 Sep 2023
When people outside the state think of Wisconsin, they usually envision cheese, beer, dairy farms and manufacturing. But a new collaboration aims to add the state’s growing biohealth industry to that list.
A consortium of 15 health technology companies, nonprofits and higher education institutions have applied for a "Regional Tech Hub" designation from the federal government. The designation would cover Madison and Milwaukee Metropolitan Statistical Areas, and would allow the state to access $50 million to $75 million in federal funds from the CHIPS and Science Act of 2022.
