Sheboygan County, WI – A key mission of the Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation (SCEDC) is to provide opportunities to Sheboygan County entrepreneurs and help them make informed business decisions. The SCEDC has partnered with the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at UW-Green Bay to bring the Entrepreneurship Training Program (ETP) virtually to the entrepreneurs of Sheboygan County.

Whether your business is just starting up, in the growth phase, or transitioning ownership, writing a business plan is critical to building a profitable venture, and is especially important when attracting financing from lenders or investors. 

“The ETP is an eight-session course designed to help entrepreneurs develop a business plan for informed decision making,” said Tara Carr, Director of the SBDC at UW-Green Bay. “Students will learn to identify customers, determine their needs, and analyze that information into a feasible plan for starting or growing their business.”

The ETP class is offered on Thursdays from 5:30-8:30 PM from February 11th through April 8th with orientation scheduled for January 28th.  The class will be taught virtually but offers one-on-one consulting from a local SBDC business consultant.  The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation is offering qualified applicants an Entrepreneurial Training Grant that covers most of the $1,000-course fee. The grant covers 75% of the tuition, reducing the cost to $250. The upfront cost will be $200 with a successful application, plus a book purchase of $50.

Sheboygan County entrepreneurs should consider taking the upcoming virtual ETP opportunity starting February 11th. To register, follow the link to the SBDC or call/email (920)366-9063 or
