The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) is accepting applications from nonprofit and community-based organizations for a grant program designed to advance the statewide climate for entrepreneurship.
The Entrepreneurship Support Program provides financial assistance of between $10,000 and $100,000 for projects that promote entrepreneurship and provide Wisconsin entrepreneurs with key resources, including training, mentorship, and business development and financial services.
Launched as a pilot program in 2016, the initiative provided nearly $500,000 in grants to 11 projects statewide in its first year to help fund activities such as prototyping assistance, legal services, and outreach to underserved entrepreneurs. Because of the strong interest in the program, WEDC allocated another $500,000 for grants this year.
