Forward Wisconsin Website
From 1984 until mid 2012, Forward Wisconsin, Inc was the state of Wisconsin's official nonprofit marketing entity. Policy changes caused Forward Wisconsin, Inc. to be dissolved. At the urging of local economic development groups in order to continue providing the data needed by economic developers, the Wisconsin Economic Development Institute, Inc. (WEDI) agreed to maintain the data portions of Forward Wisconsin's website.
The Forward Wisconsin website provides updated resources for businesses looking to either open a new location, to expand an existing business in Wisconsin or to start a new business. There is also an interactive business cost comparison among Wisconsin and thirteen other states. May, 2013.
