Portage County Business Council delivers results – results to the economy through our economic development efforts, and results to area businesses through our Chamber of Commerce.

Wisconsin River, Stevens Point

We’ve got our economic development proposition down to three words. It’s better here.

Actually, it’s much better here, but that’s four words.


The Portage County Business Council works with local municipalities and state agencies to promote business development in our area and smooth the way for businesses expanding or relocating to Portage County.  The Business Council promotes the Portage County community by featuring available properties, resources and news of interest to potential and growing businesses.

Assistance is just a phone call away. The PCBC serves as a key contact for economic development information and referrals.

Although Ki Mobility doesn’t necessarily ‘need’ the Business Council for growth anymore like we did when we first started out, we continue to be a member and support them because it is the right thing to do, and we want to be a leader/example for other businesses. It is part of being a good citizen.”

–Doug Munsey, Ki Mobility
