What is Madison Enterprise Center?

Madison Enterprise Center (MEC) is a 1st stage business incubation initiative of Common Wealth Development that was launched in partnership with Madison Gas and Electric (MGE) in 1987. MEC offers office and light industrial business incubation spaces, in order to support start-up and expanding small businesses.

The Madison Enterprise Center offers an affordable rental rate and shared services including high-speed internet and video conferencing equipment. The on-site manager is available to provide business assistance and resource-matching services to connect tenants with existing business support programs.

How Does It Work?

Businesses may stay at the Madison Enterprise Center from 3-5 years. To qualify for acceptance into the Madison Enterprise Center, a business must be a for-profit company, produce a product or provide a service, and have the potential for future job creation. All applicants must prepare a business plan as part of the application package that is reviewed and evaluated by the Business Development Committee, which makes acceptance decisions.
