Young Enterprising Society plans to launch a new training program for urban Milwaukee startups called The Blueprint.
The Blueprint will offer technology, e-commerce and advanced manufacturing training to entrepreneurs seeking to establish new companies or grow existing businesses in Wisconsin.
YES co-founders and brothers Khalif and Que El-Amin, entrepreneurs and real estate developers, will lead the training program at the M-WERC Energy Innovation Center, 4201 N. 27th St. They aim to support growth in the central city, help residents develop technology and innovation skills, and increase the diversity in Milwaukee’s professional millennial population.
“We’re looking for all of the existing (central city startups), and we’re also at the same time looking to create new startups,” Que said. “There are some in the urban community but a lot of them have to be identified so that’s part of the process.” Read the full story here.
