The Wisconsin Technology Council
The Wisconsin Technology Council
The Tech Council is the science and technology advisor to the Governor and the Legislature.  Launched in 2001, the Tech Council was created by a bipartisan act of the governor and the Legislature.  It is an independent, non-profit and non-partisan board with members from tech companies, venture capital firms, all levels of education, research institutions, government and law. The Tech Council has three main functions:
  • It provides policy guidance to lawmakers, the governor, state agencies and other institutions in Wisconsin.  It has most notably done so through “Vision 2020: A Model Wisconsin Economy” and white papers that have served as background for policymakers.
  • It serves an important in-state networking role through Wisconsin Innovation Network (WIN), a community-based organization dedicated to fostering innovation and entrepreneurship.  It also works with other statewide and local affiliates. And it provides out-of-state networking through its “I-Q Corridor” activities and other events.
  • It serves as an economic catalyst through programs such as: Wisconsin Innovation Network (WIN); Wisconsin Entrepreneurs’ Conference; Wisconsin Early Stage Symposium; Monthly WIN Events; Governor’s Business Plan Contest (BPC); Wisconsin Angel Network; and Wisconsin Security Research Consortium.
