Long known as a biotech and health care hub, from which university graduates often fled to bigger cities, Madison today is home to rising wages, plenty of incubators, and booming upstarts. And, finally, there’s financing for all the innovation.

An abundance of tech companies in biotech and health care testify to the city’s vibrant lifestyle and reasonable cost of living.

For years, the Badger State bemoaned its post-graduation “brain drain” from schools such as University of Wisconsin-Madison. Now, a burgeoning startup scene, plentiful tech jobs, and an abundance of remote work are compelling graduates to stick around and enjoy the city’s vibrant culture and reasonable cost of living.
