Small Business Development Center (SBDC) client Samuel Clark was awarded Entrepreneur of the Year before more than 180 young professionals and community business leaders gathered for the 2017 Next Wave Young Professional Awards on Tuesday at The Berkshire in downtown Sheboygan. Clark purchased the business in 2015 after serving as an employee for the company. He redeveloped three buildings on Michigan Avenue in Sheboygan and has enjoyed great success. He was an early client with Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation’s Entrepreneurial Development efforts, working in collaboration with the Small Business Development Center at UW-Green Bay. The project brought together services for business plan development, non-traditional finance and site assistance.
