Ignite Wisconsin, a brand new nonprofit resource headquartered in Eau Claire, aims to help prospective entrepreneurs take the first step to fulfilling their dreams of owning a business.


A program of the Innovation Foundation of Western Wisconsin (IFWW) – a nonprofit organization created to help Western Wisconsin startup and growth companies to start up and grow faster – Ignite Wisconsin focuses on fostering entrepreneurship and will provide participants with mentorship, guidance and inspiration to help them find success. The group will also offer funding if the amount is matched by participants or other sources.

The “entrepreneurial storytellers” create videos of successful entrepreneurs to help inspire and spur motivation in people who may be considering making the jump to entrepreneurship. Learn more about Ignite Wisconsin.
