Wisconsin Women’s Business Initiative Corporation (WWBIC) hosted a funding resources forum recently. Area partners helped promote this event: Badger High School, Lake Geneva Development Corporation, Walworth County Visitors Bureau, Walworth County Job Center, and WCEDA. This was an effort to bring awareness about the services that WWBIC provides to businesses. Fifty years ago, WWBIC started to help women entrepreneurs.
Now WWBIC works with any person interested in starting or growing a business. Its three main functions are education, funding, and business assistance. Many of its classes have no cost, subjects ranging from checking basics to strategic business planning. When you receive a loan from WWBIC, you are assigned a personal consultant to ensure success. Previously, classes were offered in the Milwaukee and Madison areas. WWBIC would like to develop class offerings in Lake Geneva through Badger High School and will start its first class on April 21st at 6:30 p.m., entitled “Turn Your Hobby into a Business.” Local accessibility to WWBIC resources will be a great asset for our local businesses. We will continue to report updates on this initiative. For more information on WWBIC, click here.
