The Blueprint, an accelerator that invests in startups and provides training and mentorship, is launching a program based at the Urban Hub co-working space in downtown Green Bay, according to a Monday announcement.

The Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. (WEDC) is funding The Blueprint-Green Bay with a $150,000 grant to New North Inc., an economic development agency in northeastern Wisconsin.

“This program is a first for the Green Bay area and it’s a wonderful opportunity for the community to help entrepreneurs of all backgrounds succeed,” WEDC deputy secretary and chief operating officer Sam Rikkers said in a statement.
