The Small Business Development Center at UW-Green Bay is a partner in presenting “Marketing Made Lean,” a four-part series for micro and small businesses developed by the Fox Valley Technical College Venture Center Team.
Two of five Marketing Made Lean series will be presented at the Green Bay E-Hub, 443 S. Jackson St., Ste. 102, Green Bay.

Participants in the four-part, 16-hour Marketing Made Lean series will learn to use techniques for gathering customer insights and feedback to increase brand awareness. The program will introduce attendees to entrepreneurial marketing, and engage them in hands-on activities designed to reinforce concepts and create a lean marketing plan complete with budgets and expected return-on-investment. The sessions are broadly broken out to include “Defining your Business Purpose and Reconnecting with your Vision” (week one); “Positioning and Developing Marketing Channels” (week two); “Customer Relationship Strategies” (week three); and “Marketing ROI, Strategic Plan and Implementation” (week four).
