Entrepreneurship Bootcamp Cohort 4

Entrepreneurship Bootcamp Cohort 4 is in progress with 8 EITs meeting in Milwaukee on Wednesday evenings and online Saturday mornings. Diana taught two classes recently about meaningful apologies, the power of a promise, and time management. In addition, 3 EIT alumni joined the group to share about their experiences and encourage them. People with criminal records who would like to join the program in 2023 can apply here. Entrepreneurship Bootcamp Cohort 5 kicked off on Tuesday, Aug. 16 with 18 EITs from 9 counties. They will meet twice weekly online through Nov. 17. Business people who would like to volunteer as coaches in the program can register here. EIT Partnership post-release programming is supported by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation.

The EIT Partnership (with Katie & Diana) held a gathering of EIT alumni, current students, coaches, and families at UWO-Fond du Lac on August 14. About 20 people from Eau Claire, Milwaukee, Racine, Appleton, Plover, and Fond du Lac came together to share a meal and dialogue on successes and challenges in their entrepreneurship. This was the first time many had met each other in person. The current Bootcampers appreciated the chance to meet others in similar circumstances working on entrepreneurship. Creating community experiences outside of formal classes is important to the peer mentorship and empathy building goals of the program.

Nonprofit leaders and board members are invited to attend these free webinars hosted by UW-Madison Extension Brown County and UW-Green Bay.
