UW-Oshkosh About Us

 

Working to create and maintain a dynamic entrepreneurial environment in Northeast Wisconsin

 

 

The Wisconsin Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at UW Oshkosh and its Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (CEI) initiative are working to create and maintain a dynamic entrepreneurial environment in Northeast Wisconsin.

 

Established in 1980, the SBDC provides customized entrepreneurial development services, focusing on business consulting and targeted business education. As part of its consulting program, the center employs a staff of experienced business professionals who provide no-cost, confidential consulting to companies with up to 500 employees.

 

Through the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation initiative, we can also provide a wide range of educational programs and services for high-growth entrepreneurs and assistance to them in seeking grant and equity financing. The CEI also provides a pathway to the expertise and research capabilities of the faculty, staff and students of the UW Oshkosh College of Business.
