While the U.S. celebrates its varied and successful small businesses during the 50th National Small Business Week, Wisconsin business owners and entrepreneurs will have the chance to learn and network for free during the Lieutenant Governor’s Small Business Academy.
This four-day virtual conference takes place May 3 to 6. On May 6, participants will also have the opportunity to join in-person events hosted by partner organizations across the state.
“Wisconsin’s small business owners are hard-working innovators whose ingenuity solves problems, builds businesses and communities,” said Missy Hughes, secretary and CEO of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC). “These business owners need to understand that they’re not alone as they work to grow their business. The entire state of Wisconsin is supporting them with educational opportunities such as the Lieutenant Governor’s Small Business Academy, grants and partnerships with nonprofit groups and the federal Small Business Administration that offer training, advice, loans and so much more.”
