Your gateway to education
The SBDC at UW-Parkside, as part of the College of Business, Economics, and Computing, focuses on strategies to train small business owners and entrepreneurs so they have the skills they need to succeed, including the intensive Entrepreneurial Training Program (ETP). You can tap into a multitude of local, regional and state resources through your local campus. We are strategically located to provide consulting from our Kenosha location and work extensively in the broader region, including Racine, Pleasant Prairie, Trevor, Paddock Lake, Salem, Twin Lakes, Bristol, Mt. Pleasant, Kansasville, Dover, North Cape, Sturtevant and Union Grove.
Your connection to an entire network
You have ambitious goals but don’t always have the direction or connections to get there. The SBDC can be your go-to resource to build a strong network. We work closely with banks, chambers of commerce, economic development organizations and others across southeast Wisconsin to match your specific needs with the best solutions. Plus, the Wisconsin SBDC is part of the Institute for Business & Entrepreneurship, which offers additional statewide resources.
