Hello Investors, Partners & Friends,
As the leaves fall, collaboration grows in the Fox Cities Region!
October marked the conclusion of this year's Talent Upload - FCRP's award-winning program focused on attracting IT, computer science and engineering talent to the Fox Cities. The program, which ran September 29-October 1, brought 74 students from a dozen Midwest universities for a tour of the area. 17 local employers - all competing for the same talent - came together for the greater good of the region, and helped make Talent Upload's third session another huge success.
This month also gave way to the first event by the I-41 Corridor Marketing Collaborative - a group of economic developers from Green Bay to Fond du Lac, working together to attract new business and investment to our communities. The group joined forces to market a five-county region to a group of national site selection consultants in the first-ever I-41 Corridor Site Selector Familiarization Tour. If you missed their public debrief, click below to see what these site selection experts said about the Corridor's strengths and areas for improvement (hint: collaboration and talent made the list).
All My Best,
Vice President, Economic Development
