Homegrown coming to Kenosha County

In an exciting collaborative effort, the UW-Madison Division of Extension in Kenosha County is thrilled to announce a unique, one-day training workshop titled “Homegrown: Entrepreneurship in Your Community.” Scheduled for Wednesday, April 3rd, 2024, from 9 am to 5 pm at the Kenosha County Center, this event aims to support the local entrepreneurial network in Kenosha County.

“Homegrown” is the result of a partnership between the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Missouri. This program is specifically designed to deliver valuable insights into entrepreneurship, the mechanics of entrepreneurial ecosystems, and their critical role in cultivating economic development within Kenosha County. Attendees will get an in-depth view of our local entrepreneurial landscape, identifying key players and strategies to weave a stronger network of business relationships. A highlight of the event will include stories from guest entrepreneurs, shedding light on their ventures and the support systems that have propelled them to success.

Our workshop offers a comprehensive schedule delivered by UW-Madison Division of Extension trainers Maggie Cornelius and Mia Ljung. Participants will not only learn about the fundamentals of building a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem but also have the chance to meet and connect with fellow economic development leaders focused on supporting entrepreneurs.

For more information on this event, please reach out to Savannah Meyers, Kenosha County’s UW-Madison Extension Community Development Educator.
