What's Your Big Idea?

Calls for EntrepreneurshipWeek USA Participation

The Department of Commerce is seeking partners to join a national initiative in recognizing the first-ever EntrepreneurshipWeek USA. This nationwide event is being held February 27 - March 3, 2007. Utilizing the theme "What's Your Big Idea? Take it On!," EntrepreneurshipWeek USA will serve as an inspiration for young people to think creatively and to turn their ideas into action - whether that means starting a new business, developing an innovation for an existing company or solving a problem that makes Wisconsin better.

By using the EntrepreneurshipWeek USA website, supporters of EnterpreneurshipWeek USA have the ability to promote their special events and activities statewide. The links below will assist in jumpstarting your involvement in the Wisconsin celebration of entrepreneurship.

The Department of Commerce and other participating state agencies will issue press releases to highlight various entrepreneurial events that will be taking place throughout the state during the week. The Department will be co-sponsoring a series of three one-hour web casts providing aspiring entrepreneurs the chance to pose questions to presenters involved in Entrepreneurship. Dates and times of the web casts is available at www.commerce.wi.gov/BD/BD-YouthEntrepreneurWebcast.html.

For additional information or should you have questions about EntrepreneurshipWeek USA, please contact Carol Dunn, Small Business Ombudsman at cdunn@commerce.state.wi.us or 608-267-0297.
