During yesterday’s meeting of the Common Council, the Council adopted file #210815 – Resolution designating January 29, 2022, as MKE Business Now Entrepreneurship Summit Day in the City of Milwaukee. The MKE Business Now Entrepreneurship Summit is held annually to support the growth of local entrepreneurship and help innovators stimulate economic development, neighborhood reinvestment and job creation. 2022 marks the tenth anniversary of this community-building event.

Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs, who sponsored the Council resolution and hosts the event, is encouraging local business owners and entrepreneurs to save the date for the 2022 summit. “The MKE Business Now Entrepreneurship Summit has successfully connected aspiring entrepreneurs with valuable city resources, business startup workshops and mentorship. Given the ongoing struggles business owners and entrepreneurs have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for assistance and mentorship is greater now more than ever. I am looking forward to another great event in 2022 that can provide invaluable support to those in need,” said Alderwoman Coggs.

Various local businesses, business organizations, educational institutions, State and Federal agencies and the City of Milwaukee participate in the MKE Business NOW Entrepreneurship Summit each year, including the Department of Neighborhood Services, the Milwaukee Economic Development Corporation and the Office of Equity and Inclusion.
