Welcome to the Wyoming Next Gen Exchange.  The Exchange is intended to be an ongoing one-stop source of information and assistance for Wyoming’s Next Gen Sector Partnerships.  Our current emphasis is on sharing strategies and resources for managing through the new reality created by COVID-19.  We encourage all Next Gen business and public partners to share their best practices and let us know how we can make this site more valuable for you.  We will be adding information and resources constantly and will notify you regularly with updates.  While we will update you on available state government assistance, we hope that you will use this site to help each other in the best tradition of Next Gen.
