Like most people, Wisconsinite’s want their state to be a great place to live and work. Wisconsin as a state, ranks anywhere from 35th to dead last in job creation! Wisconsin possesses all the needed ingredients (intellectual property, research facilities, well educated workforce) to form these companies except for the needed financing through investment in these companies. The BrightStar Foundation was established 3 years ago to take deductible donor contributions and invest them in job creating early stage companies. In the 2.5 years of deploying money, the foundation has invested over $4 million into 29 individual companies with the intent of growing hundreds and then thousands of high paying jobs. Thomas Shannon,  President & CEO of BrightStar  will provide insight into their work.

The population of Milwaukee would be shrinking if not for the growth of the Latino population, while Latino workers have accounted for all net growth in employment in the four-county area during the last 25 years. A new study commissioned by the Greater Milwaukee Foundation offers an unprecedented look at conditions in the Latino community and the trends that continue to shape the region. The study will permit greater understanding, among Milwaukee policymakers and residents alike, on the nature of the remarkable demographic and economic transformation underway here, and inform discussion about the implications of these trends for the future of the city and the region.
