The St. Croix Economic Development Corporation recently donated $33,000 to the River Falls Economic Development Corporation to support the manufacturing space at the new innovation center. The St. Croix Valley Business Innovation Center is a multipurpose center for small businesses and entrepreneurs in search of growth and expansion of research, development, and innovation.
The CIBD will open in early 2018 and hopes to connect university resources to the local business community, support growth of entrepreneurs in the region, and strengthen existing relations between the business support system in the area. The UW-River Falls Small Business Development Center will also be housed at the facility.
