The Milwaukee organization, called Young Enterprising Society, is partnering with the Green Bay Chamber of Commerce as well as the regional economic development group The New North. The new accelerator program will be based at the Urban Hub co-working space in Green Bay.

WEDC is supporting the new effort with a $150,000 grant.

“This program is a first for the Green Bay area and it’s a wonderful opportunity for the community to help entrepreneurs of all backgrounds succeed,” said Sam Rikkers, deputy secretary and chief operating officer of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation.
