Our Future. Today.

Our Mission

Wired Wisconsin is a non-profit coalition of concerned individuals, businesses and organizations who are working to put our state on the cutting edge of technology. The coalition will work to support an environment for innovative technology, high-tech job creation, and economic growth. Wired Wisconsin will seek to educate consumers, policy makers, and businesses about technology- related legislative and regulatory issues that impact our lives and advocate for common-sense approaches to spur innovation and grow the economy.

Why Wisconsin Needs This

From world-class research institutions, to forward-thinking corporations, to bio-industry advancements, Wisconsin is primed to play a leading role in the future of technology development. Although industry-specific organizations address these issues, there is not a broad coalition advocating for technological advancement. Wired Wisconsin will fill this void.

Why Get Involved

Technological growth depends on drawing ideas and knowledge from many sources and making the connections to link them together. Wired Wisconsin will work with our members and top researchers, industry leaders, and policy makers throughout Wisconsin to help support innovation and expansion and create a unified path forward for our state.

Midwest Consumers for Choice and Competition

MCCC is a non-profit organization of state chapters and individual consumers interested in technology, broadband, and telecommunication issues in the Midwest region and working to promote and support access and broadband deployment, as well as innovative technology and economic job growth in the Midwest.
