The Office of
Business Development is your business advocate working within state government
to help answer your
questions, as well as suggest rule changes on your behalf. Our number one goal is to help make Wisconsin
a better place to do business and it starts with getting to know you.
We work with business owners, trade associations, and Chambers of
Commerce throughout Wisconsin to ensure business has a voice in working with
State government. We can help cut
through the red tape of government and remove antiquated and unnecessary
regulations that pose a threat to creating new jobs.
The feedback we receive from business owners like you can identify laws
and rules that need to be changed or eliminated because they negatively impact
your business or have become irrelevant in your industry. We help connect organizations and State
agencies to produce meaningful changes that reduce time and money compliance
burdens on small business.
We have been called the ‘concierge
service for business.’ When you
contact us, we take the time to understand your concerns and work to get issues
resolved quickly. In 2013, business
owners brought more than 200 issues to our Office asking for help, information
or regulatory relief and reform. We
were able to help resolve issues between these organizations and State
agencies, as well as identify 50 regulatory reform ideas.
Please contact us:
- If you have an issue that needs some additional attention
- Would like to recommend a rule change (you can also go online to recommend a rule change)
- Would like to have us speak with your local or community business group
Together, we can present rule changes that will help your business grow
and prosper and we hope to hear from you.
