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 on 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.

Considering taking the 9-week Entrepreneurial Training Program?   To learn if this course is for you, attend the Entrepreneurial Training Program Orientation Day set for Thursday, September 8, 2021, at 5:30 pm virtually or in-person at NTC-Antigo Campus at 312 Forrest Avenue in room WT-108A.  The Entrepreneurial Training Program orientation is a one-hour session that participants will learn the “must-dos” to launch a business and keep it running, understand why a business plan is critical to a business’s success, and explore the characteristics of successful entrepreneurs.  There is no cost to attend this orientation, but pre-registration is appreciated. To register, call Langlade County Economic Development at 715-623-5123, email aclose@co.langlade.wi.us, or click here to register online.  If you miss the orientation day, not a problem.  Please call our office at 715-623-5123 to discuss taking the Entrepreneurial Training Program.
