The Entrepreneurial Training Program

Business Plan Series

The Entrepreneurial Training Program (ETP) offered by the Wisconsin Small Business Development Center at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point is a 8-9 week course that provides an easy to follow, step by step process that shows you how to:

  • Answer the question – "Will people buy my product or service?"
  • Appeal to more customers
  • Develop a lender-ready business plan
  • Use time, money, and resources wisely

Through instruction, guest speakers, and counseling, the course serves those who are considering starting a business, owners of existing businesses struggling to get a handle on all the details, and those with successful companies they want to grow.
