The Sheboygan County Economic Development Corp. (SCEDC) this week unveiled a new seed accelerator program in partnership with Lakeland University and the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp.

Called the Sheboygan County Accelerator for Learning Entrepreneurship (SCALE), the program invests in up to six pre or early-revenue startups per cohort, per year.

“SCALE is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs with a start-up business,” said Ray York, SCEDC and Small Business Development Center at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay business counselor. “The program will educate these entrepreneurs while accelerating their progress by connecting them to the resources in our innovation community. We are fortunate to partner with Lakeland University, which has created the curriculum of SCALE and has a great educator in Stephanie Hoskins, (Herb Kohler and Frank Jacobson) chair of business and entrepreneurship, who has gone through many accelerator programs herself.”
