Northeastern Wisconsin's Growth Agenda
of Wisconsin-Green Bay Chancellor Bruce Shepard presented "Northeastern
Wisconsin's Growth Agenda"
to the UW System Board of Regents Business, Finance, and Audit Committee on Thursday, April 6, 2006.
The board held its April 2006 meetings on the UW-Green Bay campus.
|I said, earlier, we owned the 1900s. We
intend to own the next century as well. THIS IS NO RUST BELT.
Consider these features:
• Entrepreneurial strength recognized nationally
• Booming business parks
• Booming business sectors
There is a common denominator. And, it holds not just in the industrial parks full of smaller high-tech manufacturing enterprises but also in the traditional “big industries” be they paper, cheese, trucking, meat packing, or even the Packers.
The major value added is not occurring on the factory floor – or behind the wheel of a truck, or even on the playing field Sunday; it’s happening in the offices where innovative people, our graduates prominent among them, are figuring out better ways to build, market, finance, and, above all else, relentlessly innovate, even developing whole new knowledge-based industries like logistics.
