Entrepreneurship Program

Entrepreneurship Training Course

With the generous donation from The Suick Family Foundation, Langlade County Economic Development Corporation has been able to offer a 9-week Entrepreneurial Training Program.  Participants explore all major aspects of starting and running a small business. The course moves at a quick pace to complete a thorough business plan.  Langlade County participants are eligible for a partial course reimbursement if the participant completes the course requirements.

Based off of the completed business plan and presentation at the end of the course, a grant opportunity is available to entrepreneurs that complete the course and are opening a business or already have an established business in Langlade County.
