On August 29, 2018, the Milwaukee Business Journal reported a collaboration on how Israel is working with Wisconsin, specifically The Global Water Center (The Water Council), an EB-5 project, to share innovations for each other’s water technology industries.
Aviv Ezra, Consulate General of Israel to the Midwest, met with city and community officials to discuss how Israel is building a water technology bridge to Wisconsin.
"What we wanted to do is create a platform and give incentives to Israeli and local companies in Milwaukee to tackle certain topics and certain needs that are on the agenda. This beautiful building (Global Water Center) is the platform on the Milwaukee side," stated Ezra. "The heartland of America is the Midwest. From agriculture to water, everything is right here in the middle of America. Consider it an untapped treasure," he added.
The goal, by the end of 2018, is to fund conduct pilot testing of solutions by Israeli water technology companies in Wisconsin.
