09 Nov Five technology companies qualify for investor tax credits
Madison, Wis. – The Department of Commerce (Commerce) has qualified five small businesses for investor tax credits under the new Angel Investor and Venture Fund Tax Credit Programs.
“By encouraging investors through tax credits to make these crucial investments, we are helping to turn these great ideas into viable, job-creating businesses,” Gov. Jim Doyle said.
The Angel Investor and Venture Fund Tax Credit Programs offer Wisconsin income tax credits to angel investors and investors in seed-stage venture capital funds. These programs are designed to increase the supply of both qualified angel investors and investors in qualified venture capital funds.
