Regional Finance Center
The Village of Winneconne is also a regional finance center, home to 3 banks plus other diversified financial and insurance services. Winneconne's Village Board of Trustees together with the Village Industrial Development Board have planned carefully and well to provide for the community's growth and welfare.

The Sovereign State Industrial Park is approximately 77 acres, and is located off of Grant Street. The Village has designed a landscaped berm to separate residential from industrial.

Tax Incentives
The Village of Winneconne and the Winneconne Industrial Development Board have a long tradition of economic development activity in Northeast Wisconsin. Land in the Sovereign State Industrial Park is ready to build with all infrastructure in place. The Park is located within a tax increment finance district (TIF) and, as such, features prime industrial sites at highly competitive prices. All lots are improved to include sanitary and storm sewer, water, gas, and 3 phase electric utilities.
