In seventh grade, Brennan Seehafer of Manitowoc started a production company and brought a major show to the city’s Capitol Civic Centre. He spent hours planning, securing sponsors and selling program ads to offset the risk. The show was a success.“I always enjoyed planning and management in the music industry,” he said. “It was exciting to plan and host events. And, I still got my schoolwork done.”
…He had numbers that proved his ability as an owner, but still needed a business plan. For help with that, he took a business plan class through the UW-Green Bay Small Business Development Center.
“That class was pivotal, and it’s offered all around Wisconsin,” Seehafer said. “If you complete your plan, you actually get your money back. With the help of Dave Stauffacher and Tara Carr of SBDC, I had a good plan to bring to the bank.”
