Accelerate Sheboygan County

Business Challenge

HOME: Welcome

How it Works

The Accelerate Sheboygan County Business Challenge is a program that supports entrepreneurs and innovators in developing their ideas. Professionals review each submission and provide free guidance from either the Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation or the Small Business Development Center at UW-Green Bay. 

Throughout the year up to five ideas will be awarded a $1,000 technical assistance grant to use for business services. The top two grand prize winners will be declared in December after pitching their ideas in November. The pitch grand prizes are $1,000 and $500.  

Accelerate Sheboygan County is a public-private initiative that aims to attract, retain, and promote business resilience and a more diverse and inclusive community essential to growth.
