MADISON, Wisconsin – SCORE Wisconsinhas been chosen to receive a $74,800.00 Entrepreneurial Partnership Grant for fiscal year 2022-2023 from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC). The goal of the grant is to encourage local and regional economic development throughout the state and extend SCORE’s outreach to every part of Wisconsin, especially the underserved or rural areas.
