Applauds TitletownTech’s Investment in Northeast Wisconsin’s Future

GREEN BAY– Senator Robert Cowles (R-Green Bay) released the following statement after attending the announcement of new details on the TitletownTech partnership agreement between Microsoft, the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, the UW-System, and the Green Bay Packers:

“Thanks to the partnership that started with Microsoft’s announcement last year about the new TitletownTech, Northeast Wisconsin is ready to prove that you don’t need to be in Silicon Valley to be in the cutting edge of the new digital world. For decades, Northeast Wisconsin’s economy has largely been led by fields like agriculture and manufacturing, both of which have become more reliant on technological advances in recent years. The support and resources that will be available from the addition of TitletownTech to our region provides an opportunity for creative minds who understand the challenges in our region’s economy to come up with innovative digital solutions and drive progress not only in our region, but in the entire nation. I want to express my sincerest appreciation to Microsoft for their investment in our region, and to the Green Bay Packers, UWGB, and the UW-System for their partnership in these efforts.”
