What is Milwaukee proposing?

The City of Milwaukee is looking to unify a legacy of inclusive, but fragmented procurement practices into one powerful system that achieves better results for its residents. The City Accelerator will assist the city in building partnerships with entrepreneurs, lenders and business development organizations, and use data to take a “money ball” approach to identifying promising sectors for contracting and business expansion support. Lessons learned from the cohort could lead to dynamically planned procurement practices and an inclusive sector analysis strategy for economic growth.
