The Entrepreneurial Education Program (EEP) in Rhinelander is offered by Nicolet College and UW-Stevens Point Continuing Education through the SBA Community Navigator Pilot Program. It is a 8 week course that provides an easy to follow, step by step process that shows you how to:

  • Answer the question – "Will people buy my product or service?"
  • Appeal to more customers
  • Develop a lender-ready business plan
  • Use time, money, and resources wisely
Through instruction and guest speakers, the course serves those who are considering starting a business, owners of existing businesses struggling to get a handle on all the details, and those with successful companies they want to grow.

Textbook will be provided at no charge to participants in the program. If there is a second person registering from the same company, they will need to purchase their own textbook online on Amazon.

Program Reviews

"This information is priceless. I wish I would have taken the class before I started my business 3 years ago as the mistakes are plentiful and this class helps stop those from happening."

"I am currently enrolled in two Entrepreneurship classes, this one and another which isn't affiliated with this instructor (and program). I can tell you that this class is much better and more organized, so thank you for that."

"For me, it really was about the Strategic Positioning. Trying to figure out who my company is, how to define it, and how it fits in the marketplace was really eye-opening."
