The most vibrant communities enjoy rich entrepreneurial ecosystems, and Southeastern Wisconsin is no different. From enterprise magnets to local family businesses, Wisconsin's entrepreneurial heritage is vast. But continuing conversations about regional competitiveness have leaders focused on talent attraction and engagement, as well as business retention strategies.
The fact is, startups account for nearly all net new job creation1. That's why a coalition of local entrepreneurs, investors, and business leaders are working with a host of community partners to design and launch Kenosha Startup Week.
Aligned with statewide efforts, Kenosha Startup Week events are planned for November 6-12. By offering educational seminars, business workshops, networking events and other programming, Kenosha Startup Week aims to:
Help entrepreneurs discover resources in their community
Highlight the importance of startups to the growth of the local and state economy
Showcase innovations developed by startup companies throughout the region
But effective change cannot happen without the help of stakeholders. If you'd like more information about Kenosha Startup Week, or if you want to help lead the effort to develop a richer entrepreneurial ecosystem in your community, connect with us:

I wanted to let you know that I am extremely pleased with the investment we made in the Jumpstart program. Everyone that I have had contact with at Leeward has been very helpful and responsive. Jason is well versed in the Fortinet products and has done an excellent job so far in providing training, answering our questions during the implementation process, and verifying our configuration. Leeward has so far been able to meet and exceed my expectations in this project. Please pass that on to your superiors. Also, if you ever need a reference from a customer, I would be happy to assist.
