It is a great privilege to be able to lead the Vilas County Economic Development Corporation. We have a strong, volunteer working board whose members all contribute their time, skills, and money to help ensure that the VCEDC can enhance the economy in the Northwoods. In partnership with the county, our townships, Nicolet College, and area business leaders, we offer a broad range of services and support for new and existing businesses and entrepreneurs.
Because of the continuing growth of high speed internet services throughout the county, which we have supported, the Northwoods is truly “open for business”. It’s now possible to live in the beautiful Northwoods and conduct business worldwide and we’re proud to see growing momentum of the creation of new quality jobs in Vilas county.
With the support of area business leaders, we’ve also been able to provide matching grant funding to several area schools so they can provide Fab Labs for students. This kind of technology knowledge is key to helping students see there are opportunities to become future business owners in the Northwoods.
We need your help to continue the economic development momentum that we’re seeing. We ask individuals and businesses to join us in financially supporting the VCEDC. We realize we must grow more private financial support for our efforts.
Our goal for our 2018 campaign is $150,000. These funds will help us provide more tools, more training and more resources for entrepreneurs and existing businesses in Vilas county. Please join us. Your investment is tax-deductible.
