Meet WEDC Missy

A message from Missy Hughes, Secretary and Chief Executive Officer, WEDC.

If there’s one thing you should know about the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), it’s that we’re here to help. While we’re dedicated to offering support to every single business in Wisconsin no matter the size, we’re more committed than ever to the prosperity of the 400,000+ small businesses in every corner of the state. You are the heart and soul of our communities, supporting jobs, families and livelihoods from Cassville to Hurley.

Despite the perils the pandemic has put on the small business community, there’s good reason to be optimistic. WEDC is securing more resources, more programs and more relief for businesses just like yours. And it’s not a one-time, post-pandemic effort. We’re committed to working together into the future with you.

Here’s how WEDC can help.

Thank you for taking a few minutes to get to know us. We’d like to continue the conversation. When you register your business with WEDC, we’ll send you relevant updates about small business recovery resources and support as they become available and provide you with information on new programs that can help your business thrive well beyond the pandemic. If you have an immediate question or need, please contact us today. We look forward to building the way forward together.
