Tom Still, Wisconsin Technology Council President recently shared his thoughts about the relationships Foxconn is building in Wisconsin.
"The truth be known, Foxconn founder Terry Gou and his team of 'new kids' are pushing the older crowd to do more," said Still. "Wisconsin and especially the Milwaukee region have always boasted a cadre of national and global companies. Few of those companies, however, have elected to invest in the venture capital asset class most likely to spark young companies."
"It took the arrival of Foxconn, the world’s leading contract manufacturer of consumer electronics, to open more homegrown corporate eyes to taking on more risk by making technology investments at home and abroad."
