Twenty-one entries from 15 communities – including three from the New North — are competing in the finalist round of the eighth annual Wisconsin Governor’s Business Plan Contest.

The contestants have survived two rounds of judging in the contest organized through the Wisconsin Technology Council, which produces the contest in conjunction with the Wisconsin Innovation Network, the Wisconsin Angel Network and other statewide affiliates. The contest began in late January with 220 entries.

Finalists from the New North include: Marco Araujo of InterMeds in Green Bay; Richard Bowers of Matrix Reading Solutions of Hobart; and Brad Schwei of PureTech Systems of Neenah.

Prize winners will be announced on June 7-8 at the Wisconsin Entrepreneurs’ Conference in Milwaukee.
