Gov. Jim Doyle Announcement

 MAILED:  Nov. 30, 2004

Gov. Jim Doyle will be at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Wednesday, Dec. 1, to announce the selection of UW-Eau Claire as one of four regional centers for the new Wisconsin Entrepreneur's Network.

The network is a joint effort among the University of Wisconsin Extension, the WiSys Technology Foundation, the Wisconsin Technical College System and the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.

It will be funded with $1 million a year through 2006, as part of a bill signed by Gov. Doyle in April. The measure provides money for the entrepreneurial centers and tax credits for early-stage investors and establishes a technology commercialization grant and loan program.

The announcement will take place at 2:30 p.m. in the Hormel Computer Lab (Room 101) in Schneider Hall on UW-Eau Claire's lower campus.

For more information, contact Mike Rindo, Executive Director of University Communications, at (715) 836-4742.
