Growing Business. Building Communities. Improving Quality of Life. These opportunities are interconnected. And it’s our job to see that we provide the business, educational, and economic development leadership necessary to build strong communities and improve the quality of life for the residents of Marathon County. Just how do we do that?
MCDEVCO has partnered with Marathon County Government and the Wausau Region Chamber of Commerce to provide site selectors, business leaders, employees and residents with key initiatives and resources that help them establish businesses, identify financing resources, expand their opportunities, receive the training and education they need to advance, capitalize on Marathon County’s resources and connectivity, and help them establish business partnerships that are mutually beneficial.
The result? An interdependent group of municipalities thriving on Wisconsin Central Time — where the potential to grow a business, build strong communities and enjoy a higher quality of life are easily within reach.
