2012 Iowa County Wisconsin Entrepreneurs of the Year

Congratulations 2012 Iowa County Wisconsin Entrepreneurs of the Year!

Our Iowa County Area Economic Development Corporation (ICAEDC) is proud to announce it’s first group of local business leaders chosen as Iowa County Area Entrepreneurs of the Year.

The awards are being presented in conjunction with Global Entrepreneurship Week, Nov. 12-18, 2012.

According the Global Entrepreneurship Week website,  “The celebration of Global Entrepreneurship week is about unleashing ideas and doing what it takes to bring them to life—spotting opportunities, taking risks, solving problems, being creative, building connections and learning from both failure and success. It is about thinking big and making your mark on the world—doing good while doing well at the same time.”

This year’s award winners highlight both established and new businesses popping up all over Iowa County.  This is an exciting time to be an entrepreneur, and Iowa County is a great place to grow new businesses.

As the ICAEDC slogan says, “Iowa County, Wisconsin.  Come Grow With Us.
