AntiMussel is a semifinalist in the 2023 Governor’s Business Plan Contest.
Wisconsinites who enjoy spending their time on Lake Michigan are no stranger to zebra mussels – an invasive creature that has not only made its home within the vast body of water, but also congregates on boats and other surfaces.
Army veteran Tyler Rezachek is one of these Wisconsinites. His frustration with constantly having to clean the mussels off his boat led him to identify a problem with a business-related solution.
Rezachek began leaning into his entrepreneurial side following a five-year stint in the Army, from 2008 to 2013. He found the transition back into civilian life was less than smooth.
