How can we work with you?

Are you looking to support small businesses around Wisconsin? Work with our dynamic network focused on improving and expanding Wisconsin’s entrepreneurial ecosystem through small business assistance. These business experts, economic development organizations and entrepreneurs, often clients themselves, collaborate to strengthen the backbone of our economy.

Leveraging our Partnership

Refer a small business for consulting

Do you know someone with an innovative idea? A business hoping to expand? If you’re not equipped to help them in certain areas, our expert consultants range across Wisconsin’s industries. They’ll collaborate with you, with one goal in mind: client success.

Understand economic trends

Analyze trends in jobs and geographic distribution of competitors/prospects by industry, or dive deep into local economic conditions. Use our data to explore changes or identify opportunities.


Find a speaker for your event

Our business experts are always looking to share their expertise and expand out network. From food trends to leveraging technology for marketing to data utilization, we have you covered. Contact a speaker or presenter for your next in-person or virtual event.
