In the 2018 WEDA Success Stories, we present success stories from across the state. These are stories presented to us by board members, local economic development organizations and SBDC offices. They highlight the work being done by entrepreneurs and small businesses owners who are looking to make their corner of the state, and something the entire country, better. Read about the innovative startups that have grown into regional companies, local companies who are providing a much-needed service and initiatives aimed at growing city and county economies.
As we move to diversify Wyoming's economy, technology is playing an important role. From statewide initiatives aimed at recruiting blockchain companies to state-of-the-art Maker Spaces, Wyoming has set the stage for the growth of technology driven companies, while creating opportunities for entrepreneurs to launch their ideas. These efforts have been collaborative and often years in the making. Now, we are seeing these efforts pay off in the form of new businesses registering in our state and local startups like Kelley Integrity Safety Solutions taking their ideas national. In this issue of WEDA's Success Stories, we explore these trends, highlight local businesses and present ideas for how technology will continue to reshape Wyoming's economy.
