Free Business Support

Monday, January 15, 2018

Save money by getting the support you need directly from University of Wisconsin River Falls. The Center for Innovation and Business Development is launching a business incubator, helps with business development, and has several innovation initiatives.   

Undergraduate and graduate students can learn how to utilize the Lean Startup Methodology and compete to win $30,000. Competitors work with a mentor, make presentations, interview people about their ideas, and refine their business plans throughout the competition. This provides support and resources that can turn entrepreneurial ideas into viable companies. Even those who don’t win are better prepared to run a business once the competition is done. Recent award winners include Hippy Feet, EZ Pocket, and SoPod.
