Twenty five plans have been chosen to be finalists in the Wisconsin Governor's Business Plan Contest.
The plans include ideas for 3D printing, flight training simulation, cloud computing, and will vie to win a total of about $200,000 in seed capital and in-kind services. The finalists were chosen from 248 applicants.
Fourteen of the finalists are from the Madison area, and six are from the Milwaukee area. Two come from Whitewater, and one each from Lake Geneva, Sheboygan and Sussex.
"The business plans in the final round reflect some of Wisconsin's core technology strengths, as well as the fact that entrepreneurs can be found in emerging business sectors as well as familiar industries," Mark Bugher said in a statement. Bugher is chairman of the Wisconsin Technology Council, which organizes the contest.
Prize winners will be announced at the Tech Council's Wisconsin Entrepreneurs' Conference in Milwaukee on June 5 and June 6.
