Business Call Program

Milwaukee 7's Business Call Program identifies company-specific growth opportunities and threats, and gains a systematic, firsthand understanding of the broader issues facing companies in southeastern Wisconsin. Like any forward-thinking business, we must understand the needs of our best customers and look for ways to make the region a better place for them to operate. One-on-one visits with CEOs uncover these immediate growth opportunities and threats, and serve as the starting point for a data-based approach to economic development that moves beyond conjecture and anecdotes to focus on the core issues facing local companies.
