ABOUT Racine

World-famous for O&H Kringle and Frank Lloyd Wright designed buildings, Racine is located on Lake Michigan at the mouth of the Root River between Kenosha and Milwaukee. The fifth-largest city in Wisconsin, Racine was rated "the most affordable place to live in the world" by the Demographia International Housing Affordability survey in January 2017 and ranked #4 on a list of the best places for women to start a business by NerdWallet. We have a long history of manufacturing and innovation and over the last 100 years major companies have called Racine home including: J.I Case, S.C. Johnson, Dremel, Twin Disc, Modine, InSinkErator, Hamilton Beach, Western Publishing, and Horlickā€™s Malted Milk. Racine County is the future home of Foxconn and we are very excited to see the change and innovation that will bring and our emerging startup and entrepreneurial scene is ready to welcome it.
