MILWAUKEE, WISC. (With excerpts from www.biztimes.com) — The first cohort of Milwaukee businesses were selected as winners in the JPMorgan Chase-backed Brew City Match program, which supports entrepreneurship in Milwaukee’s historic commercial corridors. The program is focused on the Cesar Chavez Drive, Historic King Drive and North Avenue/Fond du Lac commercial corridors. Vandewalle & Associates worked with the City of Milwaukee and LISC to provide the market analysis for the Fond du Lac and North and Clarke Square areas.
