Free entrepreneurship workshop in Rhinelander Sept. 11

August 30, 2018

Nicolet College will hold a free Exploring Entrepreneurship workshop Tuesday, Sept. 11, for anyone looking to start a business or grow a current venture.

The workshop will take place from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in Fieldside Center 102 on the Nicolet campus.

“All businesses start with an idea, but that is just the first step of many to build a productive and profitable enterprise,” said Nicolet Entrepreneur Instructor Nancy Brekke-Jones. “We’ll discuss all the pieces that have to be in place, the time commitment it takes to launch and run a business, and where entrepreneurs can access the knowledge and resources needed to be successful.”

The free workshop will be followed this fall with the seven-week Nicolet Entrepreneur Training (NET) Business Blueprint Course, which will delve deeper into the subject matter and offer guidance from experts in the fields of banking and finance, business law, insurance, accounting, marketing, and more.

Designed for both new and existing business owners, the seven-week course will focus on creating a business plan and also offer access to industry and market research tools, individualized support and guidance, and resources to help transform dreams and ideas into reality.

The NET Business Blueprint course will meet Tuesdays 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Oct. 2 to Nov. 13 in Fieldside Center 102.

The course is valued at $495 per person. To cover this cost, participants can apply for full funding through a grant Nicolet received from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation and support from the Oneida County Economic Development Corporation made possible through a private donation.
