SBDC’s Trombley on importance of entrepreneurs
UW-Green Bay’s Christina Trombley, director of our Small Business Development Center, talked entrepreneurship with reporter Larry Avila for a story that ran recently in The Post-Crescent of Appleton and the Green Bay Press-Gazette. The report highlights UW-Green Bay’s new 12-credit, four-course entrepreneurship certificate program and its early success — as well as the need for such programs. “We see more students, younger people looking at entrepreneurship instead of deciding to join the work force,” Trombley said. “The number of people under 30 starting a business is rising nationally, especially in the last five years. Entrepreneurship has come to the forefront and is being promoted as a way to help the economy come back.” Full story.
