WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Are you an entrepreneur interested in starting or expanding a business? Are you from a financial institution and interested in learning more about community development financial institutions (CDFIs)? Are you interested in economic development in the south Wood County area? If your answer is yes, plan to attend the Entrepreneurial Development Series Oct. 24-25 in Wisconsin Rapids.
Participants will learn about training, support, and resources available in the region to support both aspiring entrepreneurs and established small businesses. Experts will provide information about business education and finance options available to entrepreneurs/small businesses.
